Hannibal freshman midfielder Peyton Utterback didn't score Friday night, but she sure played a central role in a 7-0 victory over Moberly in a North Central Missouri Conference match.

Utterback distributed four assists to help boost the Lady Pirates (6-3, 5-1 NCMC) to their sixth win in their past eight games.

Three of her helpers came in the first half, when Haley Ballinger and Kaylee Falconer each scored two goals a piece to build a 4-0 halftime advantage.

Falconer scored her third goal of the game in the 42nd minute to become the second Lady Pirate in as many days to record a hat trick. On the play, sophomore Hannah Nichols booted a corner kick into the box, where Falconer directed a header into the net.

Junior Shelby Stine, who scored six goals Thursday during an 11-1 win against Fulton, netted the final two scores of the game Friday in the 63rd and 65th minutes, respectively. 

Hannibal outshot Moberly 42-0 on the game, paving the way for goalkeeper Samantha Zielinski to earn her fifth shutout of the season.

“Our legs were kind of dead but the girls played well enough to earn a 7-0 win on the road and get another conference win,” Hannibal coach Eric Hill said. 

Moberly topped Hannibal in the junior varsity game 2-1. 

Riley Stevenson provided the Lady Pirates' only offense with an unassisted goal.

The JV team is now 5-2 overall and 5-1 in conference.
