Boone boys soccer
The Boone boys varsity soccer team moved their games to earlier in the day, dodged the thunderstorms that rolled through central Iowa and beat Webster City 2-1 on May 8. Each team had difficulty getting the ball inside the net, and the game was scoreless at the end of the first half. Four minutes into the second half, the Toreadors were persistent and scored the first goal. Ten minutes later, the Lynks tied the game. Boone was on the offensive for most of the remainder of game getting several shots, but sending the ball wide to one side or another. Finally with 6:24 to go, the Toreadors scored the winning goal, and played good defense for the rest of the game to keep Webster City from tying the game and sending it into overtime. Greene County’s Anthony Cunningham played the entire game and had several good defensive plays to keep the opponents from getting good shots. Boone’s varsity team improved their record to 5-6 for the year.
The two junior varsity squads played to a 0-0 tie in their contest.
The Toreadors played an exciting make-up game against Bondurant-Farrar on May 13. The two varsity teams exchanged leads and ended up in a 2-2 tie. The game was still deadlocked after two overtime periods, so a shoot out process was employed until someone got a goal. Each team designates players who individually try to kick the ball past the opposing team’s goalie. After each team had tried several times, Boone finally found the net and won the game 3-2. According to an observer, this may have been the Toreadors most exciting game of the season.
