Hickman boys soccer placed second in the 22nd annual Francis Howell School District soccer tournament.

Hickman beat Howell North 2-1 on Saturday. With 15 minutes left, Hickman scored twice in less than a minute. The first was a header from Holliday, which Willcox assisted. Connor Hollrah scored the second after dribbling past two defenders and putting in a shot just under the goalie.

Hickman then fell to Francis Howell Central 3-1. Howell Central scored 11 seconds before the half on a shot that glanced off Mills. Holliday tied the game on a volley over the goalie’s head from 25 yards out with 14 minutes left. But Howell Central’s Tim McCormack scored off a penalty kick with five and half minutes left and again off a corner kick with one minute left.

Hickman is 5-2-1. The Kewpies face Kansas City East at 4 p.m. on Tuesday at home.
