WARRENTON -- With limited players available, Fulton girls soccer lost its final two games in the Warrenton Tournament Saturday at Warrenton High School.
The Fulton Hornets lost their first game 7-0 to the Sullivan Lady Eagles before getting mercy-ruled in an 8-0 loss to the host Warrenton Warriors.
Fulton finished the Sullivan game with no substitutes due to injuries and players not being there.
Trying her best to keep the team in the game, Hornets goalkeeper Grace Ousley made at least a dozen saves against the Lady Eagles.
Fulton had a few runs and shots on goal but couldn't avoid the shutout against Sullivan.
"Players never quit," Fulton coach Andy McKee said. "Very proud of my young squad. They are still getting used to playing on turf field."
Unfortunately for the Hornets, they couldn't contain their opponent's offense or score any goals, as they lost by eight to a Warrenton team (Class 3), a class above Fulton (Class 2).
"Back to the drawing board," McKee said. "Gotta get better."
It doesn't get easier for Fulton (0-3) as it takes on Southern Boone (1-1) at 5 p.m. Tuesday in Ashland. The Hornets lost 4-0 to the Eagles in a 35-minute match at the Mexico Jamboree Monday and fell 9-0 to them in the Class 2 District 6 Tournament quarterfinals last season -- Southern Boone went on to win the district title.
