PERRYVILLE -- The Sikeston Bulldogs soccer team lost a tough road game Monday in Perryville, 2-1 in overtime.
"It was a tough game," Sikeston head coach Doyle Noe said.
After the first half, both teams were scoreless. Perryville broke the tie at the 60th minute mark on a questionable hand ball inside the box, according to Noe, which Perryville made the penalty kick and the score 1-0.
Two minutes later, Sikeston responded with a goal by Adam Johnson assisted by Chase Baron.
Baron found Johnson with the pass and Johnson made the run towards the goal to tie the game.
"Chase made a great pass and Adam made a great run and had a good touch," said Noe. "He buried it."
Shortly after, Sikeston keeper Josh Hampton came up with a big save on another penalty kick to keep the game tied in regulation.
Perryville took advantage of a ball that Sikeston tried clearing several times, but ended up with it close to Hampton at goal. Five minutes into the first overtime, the Pirates hit the back of the net with the winning goal.
"When you play on the road against a good team like Perryville it's going to be tough," Noe said. "They had two penalty kicks and one of the them gave them their goal, but you've got to overcome that stuff on the road. Good teams can do that.
"We came up a bit short but I'm proud of Paul Hughes and our defense because they played great."
The junior varsity also lost, 3-1. Sikeston lone goal was scored by Layton Jones, who finished with a head ball, with the assist by Jared Boyd.
