Reeses piece together win for Boonsboro

October 17, 2007|By JACK HILL III / Staff Correspondent

Senior twins Katie and Kellie Reese scored all of Boonsboro's goals in the No. 4 Warriors' 3-0 shutout of South Hagerstown on Tuesday night at School Stadium.

Katie Reese scored penalty-kick goals in the 21st and 52nd minutes, and Kellie Reese added the other goal in the 34th minute.

"We practice on penalty kicks a lot," Katie Reese said. "All of the practice has definitely been worth it."

Kellie Reese's goal came after Lauren Hensley's shot clanged off the bar, and gave the Warriors (8-3-1) a 2-0 halftime lead.

"I just happened to be in the right place at the right time and I put it in," Kellie Reese said. "We started out kind of slow. But toward the end, we looked better as a team. We got our passing together."


Boonsboro coach Kyle Lingg was proud of the effort and the performance of the Reese twins.

"They stepped up tonight and shot their goals when we needed them," Lingg said. "They know they have just a few more games in their high school soccer careers and they came out and played hard. They were able to execute with the support of their teammates."

"I think we have a senior-dominated team coupled with a strong underclass to support it. That will help us to make a strong run in the playoffs. As the game progressed, we seemed to execute our offense better and get more shots on goal."

Annie Meyers earned the shutout in goal for Boonsboro.

"Annie played another strong game," Lingg added. "She got her fifth shutout of the season tonight."

The Warriors outshot South (2-10), 15-6.

"It was a tough game," Rebels coach Scott Buhrman said. "I am always impressed with the fact that our girls never give up. The score doesn't reflect how well our team played. Boonsboro has a great team. I have utmost respect for Kyle Lingg and for what they do. I was impressed with Boonsboro's overall effort. They play well as a team."
