Warriors fall to Pioneers

AVON — A rough start against the Mooresville Pioneers put Danville’s hopes of advancing to the boy’s soccer sectional finals out of reach. The Pioneers pushed their early lead to a 6-2 win over the Warriors Wednesday night.

“It was a tough loss today, especially with that score line,” Danville coach Drew Brokamp said. “I think (Mooresville) just found our holes today and got through.”

The Pioneers and Warriors were scoreless through the first 15 minutes of the match before Mooresville’s Kyler Smith sent a shot in on Danville’s James Thorpe. Thorpe blocked Smith’s shot, however, the Warriors’ keeper could not hang onto the ball and Mooresville’s Caleb Shaw sent the loose ball in for the score.

Just over five minutes later, Mooresville struck again as Cory Sims connected off of a throw in for a 2-0 lead.

Danville held tough the rest of the half and went into the break trailing by two goals.

Again, after the break,  the two teams battled for the first 15 minutes of the half and were scoreless.

Danville’s Dustin Rieser had the Warriors’ best scoring opportunity of the night at the 36:20 mark with a shot that caromed off the crossbar on a breakaway.

The Pioneers again began applying pressure offensively and it was too much for Danville’s defense to handle.

The Pioneers scored three goals in a five minute span and with 20:21 remaining, led 5-0.

But to the Warriors’ credit, they did not give up.

“I was proud of my guys as they kept fighting there toward the end,” Brokamp said. “It’s good to not be shutout.”

On an assist from Turner Perkins, Rieser scored on a diving header with 17:08 remaining. He then ran to the goal, picked up the ball and ran it to midfield for the restart.

“It was great to see, never giving up,” Brokamp said of Rieser’s performance. “To go for a diving header even when you’re down. There’s a lot off spirit there. It’s great to see that.”
