H.S. SOCCER: Berea tops Paris, 2-0

BEREA — The Berea Community Lady Pirates soccer team (5-7) picked up a big win Thursday, shutting out Paris 2-0 in Berea.

The Berea goals came within a minute of each other late in the first half.

Freshman Conner Coyle put the Lady Pirates on top with a goal at the 6:51 mark.

Senior Taylor Powell followed that up one minute later with her 20th goal of the season to make it 2-0. Powell now has 78 goals in her Berea career.

The Lady Pirates pretty much dominated the game from the get-go, as their defense kept the Greyhounds at bay.

Meanwhile, the Berea offense keep the ball on the Paris side of the field for most of the night.

The Lady Pirates got off multiple shots on goal, even though only two found the back of the net.

Berea coach Jerry Bingham said he was pleased with the effort of his team, but he would like to have had a few more goals.

“I think we played well tonight, we just didn’t score a lot,” Bingham said. “We had some good looks and got off some good shots, we just didn’t get many of them in.”

Bingham made a couple of changes to his starting lineup for the game, inserting senior Sarah Fossett and freshman Jordan Sandefur, which seemed to give the team some added energy.

“Sarah came in and did a good job. She had a couple of good touches and Jordan was really active on the field and I think that helped get us going,” Bingham said.

The win breaks a three-game losing streak for the Lady Pirates.

Berea returns to action on Saturday when they travel to Wayne County to take on the Lady Cardinals at 6 p.m.

Western Hills 8, Berea 0

The Berea Community boys soccer team suffered an 8-0 loss to Western Hills Thursday in the Berea Cup.

The Pirates are now 2-6 on the season.

Berea is set to return to action Monday at Frankfort.
