Three Lady Pirates each scored a pair of goals Friday to lead Hannibal to a 6-1 victory over North Central Missouri Conference rival Marshall at Porter Stadium.

With the win, Hannibal (14-5, 10-2 NCMC) clinched second place in conference behind only undefeated Boonville.

Haley Ballinger got the scoring started for Hannibal in the 6th minute with an unassisted goal. Shelby Stine netted her first of two goals 10 minutes later before Chloe Ebers scored an unassisted goal in the 21st minute to put the Lady Pirates ahead by three.

In the 31st minute, Stine scored on an assist by Abby Baumann to give Hannibal a 4-0 halftime lead.

From that point on, the Lady Pirates sailed to victory.

"The girls played really well,” Hannibal coach Eric Hill said. "We knocked the ball around well and looked for each other. Possession was really good. Everything, honestly, I thought looked like a really good game.”

Ballinger made it 5-0 with a goal assisted by Stine in the 42nd minute before Marshall struck for its one score of the night five minutes later.

Marshall’s Rachel Storleder drilled a free kick from 30 yards out that sneaked past Hannibal goalkeeper Samantha Zielinski.

Other than that, Zielinski and the Hannibal defense held the visitors off the board.

"There were a few chances they had but Sam came up big in goal to make a couple nice saves,” Hill said. "Probably deserved a shutout tonight, but we just gave up that one goal.”

Hannibal, which totaled 18 shots during the game, registered 14 shots on goal compared to Marshall’s eight.

Ebers capped the contest with an unassisted goal in the 59th minute that made it 6-1.

The Hannibal junior varsity defeated Marshall 2-0.

Desarae Garcia recorded a shutout in goal, while Jillian Standbridge and Holly Glascock each scored goals.

The Lady Pirates JV finished the season 9-4-1 overall and 9-2-1 in NCMC.

"Just an overall really good year for JV,” Hill said. "They played well, especially in conference this year."
