The Chillicothe Hornets faced the Kirksville Tigers on the soccer pitch for the 2nd time this season on Tuesday night. After traveling to Kirksville on September 26th, and losing 2-0 to the Tigers, this time the Hornets hosted the match. Both teams were scoreless for the first 33 minutes but late in the first half Kirksville scored. The Tigers added 2 more goals in the 2nd half to win 3-0. Kirksville and Chillicothe are potential district opponents, the Tigers earned the #2 seed while Chillicothe is #4, so a possible 3rd matchup between these two teams could occur in the district championship.
