The Pierre Soccer teams finished without a loss on Tuesday at home against Watertown, however, the boys team tied the Arrows while girls pitched another shutout.
In the boys contest, the Watertown Arrows opened up the score seven minutes into the game but the Governors would answer with goals from Kasey Broers and Rylan Derry, both assisted by Cole Peterson coming a minute and two minutes later. Yet, the Arrows had answer tying the game at 2-2 at halftime. The Governors would fall behind again early in the second half but a long run for Derry found the equalizing goal for the Governors to tie the game at 3-3 pushing the Pierre record to 3-2-1.
