Rogersville Wildcats – 1 (1st OT)
Webb City Cardinals – 0
In a tightly fought match that both teams will have a hard time forgetting, it was the Wildcats who came out on top this evening, earning the programs first ever win. The goal started in the midfield, with #21 Nathan Davis winning a 50/50 ball and then finding #5, Wes Bird, on the left side. His run down the wing and cross into the box found #14 Brenden Williams unmarked at the far side. Williams confidently nodded the ball into the net past the keeper and the Wildcats had earned their first win in the 88th minute of their 5th game.
For the Cardinals, the team will rue the opportunities lost in regulation as they missed on one breakaway and several corner kicks with balls that went through the six yard box untouched. The best opportunity came late in regulation but #31 for the Wildcats stayed on the post and blocked the shot. Chalk up a Central Ozark Conference win for the Wildcats in soccer this year.
Kickapoo Chiefs – 2 (PK’s)
Chaminade Red Devils – 1
The Chief’s took the lead in the first half on a goal by Ian Kennedy assisted by Skyler Russell, before the Red Knights were able to tie it on a goal by Tony Auck in the second half. Overtime was scoreless, leading to PK’s which the Chief’s won. Skyler Russell takes the last pk and makes it for the win.
The Red Devils are 5th in the current St Louis rankings and have lost to Ft Zumwalt West (Kickapoo defeated them in the Quarterfinals last year) while going 1-2 at the Great Midwest Classic last weekend. They face #1 CBC on Saturday in their first MCC game of the season.
Bolivar Liberators – 4
Hillcrest Hornets – 2
The Liberators got the game winner midway through the second half, to earn the hard fought win at Cooper #3
New Covenant Warriors – 1
Marshfield Blue Jays – 0
Dylan Fieker scored the only game of the match to give NCA their 6th win in 7 games.
Neosho Wildcats – 2
Nixa Eagles – 1
Camdenton Lakers – 3

The Tiger’s scored on a pair of PK’s but it was a trio of Laker’s that got the win in this key District 10 match. Drew Whitney and Jeff Moffitt got goals in the first half and Nate Buttrum got the game-winner in the second half, on his first goal of the season.
Willard Tigers – 1
Monett Cubs – 0
The winning goal came from Willard’s Jackson Patillo (#10) 7 minutes into the second half. Jackson’s free kick from just outside the box found the upper right corner of the goal.
