Pershing Boys Varsity soccer (6-2) team shutout Nixa 3-0 in the semi-finals of the All City tournament. With the win, the Generals will play Cherokee in the Championship game tomorrow (10/28) at 7 p.m. on Cooper Field 1. Pershing Boys Varsity soccer has not played in the Championship game since the 2006-07 school year.
The Generals led at halftime 1-0, on Nathan Lantz (#99) perfectfully placed, unassisted goal. During the second half, Pershing’s second goal came from a Josh Call (#19) free kick to a Jack Johnson (#24) header. Finally, Pershing put the game out of reach scoring its final goal with 5 minutes remaining on that same combination Call to Johnson, as Johnson cut the ball away from the diving Nixa goalie. Nick Lantz (#00) shutout the Nixa Eagles.
Please come out to support your Pershing Generals and cheer them on to victory.
