It’s that time again in the year where district soccer takes place. Number one ranked plays number four, and number two ranked faces number three. The two winner’s of Monday’s district games, then gets to battle each other for the district title and the ticket to MSHSAA state playoffs.
Before the district championship game, you must take care of business in the first round, like number two Belton did against number three Raytown South.
During the whole game the ball was going everywhere. The Pirates and the Cardinals never stopped facing off. In the first half, the Pirates Eduardo Lopez, from the edge of the goalie box, kicked the ball on a dribble, at a perfect 45 degree angle to score Belton’s only first half goal.
In the second half Matt Hodges and Jakob Steengaard took care of business with style, scoring the Pirates two second half goals.
Belton easily left Ray South in the dust, with a first round District victory score of 3-0.
