Hannibal High School's soccer team wrapped up its regular-season schedule Wednesday night with a 2-1 victory over Southern Boone.

Southern Boone entered the contest with a record of 20-2.

Hannibal built a 2-0 lead in the first half.

Kaylee Falconer broke the scoring ice with a goal in the 20th minute with an assist to Peyton Utterback off a corner kick.

Kaylee Falconer would score again in the 30th minute with no assist.

Southern Boone would make it a one-goal game with a goal in the 43rd minute.

"From there, the remainder of the game was back and forth with neither team able to find the back of the net," said HHS Coach Eric Hill.

Hill praised his team's performance.

"Our defense played an outstanding game as an entire unit to contain their forwards and keep the game 2-1," he said. "The midfield group did an outstanding job once again getting up and down the field to provide defensive support and get us going offensively."

The Lady Pirates finished the regular season with a record of 19-4, which ties the school record for wins in a season.

In JV action, Hannibal lost 1-0.

"We played a good game, but just were unable to finish our chances," said Hill, whose JV finished the season 6-6-1.
