The dream season for Perryville soccer ended much earlier than the team would have hoped.
St. Pius X made a lone second half goal stand up as the Lancers defeated the Pirates 1-0 in the Class 2, District 1 championship game on May 17 at St. Pius High School.
The loss ended Perryville’s season and bid for the program’s third straight district title and another deep postseason run after the Pirates finished fourth in Class 2 one year ago.
A close contest was something fans in attendance should have expected after the Pirates won 1-0 in overtime in the two team’s regular season match-up.
The game’s outcome could have changed dramatically in the opening minutes of the game as Carlie Holdman rang a shot off the post in the third minute.
Perryville also had a corner a few minutes later that was a good scoring chance as well, but to no avail.
