The Southern Boone Eagles soccer team came out to Thursday’s rivalry matchup with Fatima ready to score early and often.

                     SoBoCo will play at home on Monday at 5 pm.

Their aggressive play created three opportunities in the first 10 minutes, one goal and a blitzing midfield play that kept the Comets on their feet the entire game.

The result?

A 4-0 dominating win in a game that is normally a tight defensive battle.

Maybe it was that the Eagles were smarting after a rare 2-1 loss at Canton on Monday; or maybe it was that the Eagles being humbled at Fatima last fall – only to have to watch a fireworks celebration for the Comets after their rare win over the Eagles.

Or, maybe it was both.

“It shows what this team can do if they come out and play a focused game,” said Eagles coach Chris Miller, when asked about the turn around from Monday’s loss.

Rece Gilmore had three Eagles goals and Trenton Roney had the other – on a perfect centering pass from Derek Gilmore.
