Keokuk over Demons in soccer

Posted: Wednesday, April 21st, 2010 at 8:14 am

The Chiefs won the boys and girls soccer games and both Cheif teams remained unbeaten. First the boys were playing in Keokuk. As has been the case much of the season, the Demons were playing short handed with nine players and at times eight because of injuries, meanwhile, Keokuk was subbing often to keep fresh legs on the field. Keokuk scored early and the Demons answered soon after with a goal from Oscar Velasco. As the game went along though the Chiefs’ fresh legs were able to wear down the Demons and they won 10-2. Armando Rios scored the Demons other goal.

The girls played in Washington, it was a scoreless game in the first half and in the second half Demon Head Coach Kyle Collins says they had some good looks but just couldn’t get it in the net. Keokuk scored off a corner kick to get on the board and added two more to win 3-0.
