The Northview boys' soccer team fell to Mooresville Tuesday in a shutout, 5-0.

The Pioneers jumped out to an early lead, scoring a goal in approximately the first 20 seconds.

Head coach Dustin Jorgensen said his team came out flat, but looked better as the game went on.

"We started out flat, again, and gave up a goal (early)," Jorgensen said. "Then the next 25 minutes of the game we kept possession ... we looked great, and it was exciting to see our guys play that way."

However, Jorgensen said two more mistakes allowed Mooresville to take a 3-0 lead, which they took into halftime.

Early in the second half, Mooresville was given a red card, which was an opportunity Jorgensen said he wished his team could have taken advantage of.

"In the second half (Northview) came out hard and (Mooresville) was shorthanded with the red card," Jorgensen said. "We should have taken advantage of it and we didn't. It's frustrating, but we're still improving.

There's things that we're doing right and there's things that we're doing better each game."

Mooresville went on to score two more goals in the second half, including one off of a penalty kick, amounting to a 5-0 victory.

Northview (1-4-1 overall) travels to the Danville Invitational on Saturday.
