Sometimes when you win a game, there comes a time when you felt like you could have played better.
That’s exactly how Perryville girls’ soccer coach Jerry Fulton felt after a 1-0 victory over Farmington at the Bank of Missouri Soccer Complex Monday. With the win Perryville moved to 2-0 on the season and outscored its two opponents 9-0 in the process.
“I just felt like we could have played better,” Fulton said. “I don’t know if it’s early in the season or if it’s the cold or what it was. I just felt like there was more that we could have done.”
The Pirates did everything possible to put the ball in the back of the net outshooting the Knights 15-2 in the game and had possession of the ball on their offensive half of the field about 98 percent of the time.
Kyla Schnurbusch had a run early that led to a pair of Perryville shots in the fourth minute and Ashlyn Rodewald had a shot saved in the 21st minute. Yet Perryville could not score.
“Possession-wise we outplayed them and everything else I thought we were better, but we couldn’t get the ball in the back of the net,” Fulton said. “When you have about 15 shots and score just one that’s not the best percentage, but that’s the way soccer goes sometimes.”
