COLUMBIA — After four goals the Hickman girls soccer team had all but lost its fight. The Kewpies lost 7-0 to the Lindbergh Flyers Friday at Hickman. 

Hope was still on the horizon at halftime, when the Kewpies trailed the Flyers 2-0.

"I think the girls were really excited about that. They started out the game extremely well," coach Adam Taylor said.

The Flyers scored two more early in the second half and the Kewpies began breaking down mentally. 

"That's when, emotionally, we lost it," Taylor said. "Past four we lost our fight, our desire to go strong."

Taylor said the scoreboard did not reflect the progress Hickman has made. 

"We're starting to do the right things," Taylor said. "I think we're starting to see it, but if we can start to see it on the scoreboard it will help the girls mentally. 

Even while playing Lindbergh, the Kewpies had the upcoming Rock Bridge game on their minds. 

"We pulled some of our starters off to talk to them about keeping their head up," Taylor said. "We do play Rock Bridge on Monday so we wanted to focus on that. 

Rock Bridge plays Lindbergh at home Saturday. The Bruins and Kewpies play Monday at Hickman.
