The girls soccer team defeated Tonganoxie 10-0 on Monday, April 6.

Both sides struggled to capitalize on opportunities early on, but once the scoring started, the Lady Jags never looked back. With five goals alone from sophomore midfielder Haley Freeman, offense was not a problem in this matchup.

Freeman felt that with the high scoring result, the team will be able to grow and overcome adversity in much tighter games later in the season.

“We all know that we can score now,” Freeman said. “So in the tougher games we will be able to break the other teams down and get behind them and put [the ball] in the net.”

Freeman also felt that the team accomplished what they had set out to achieve in the game.

“I thought we played really well,” Freeman said. “We all came together and worked on the things that we needed to work on. It was just a really good performance from us.”

Junior midfielder Emma Wetzel felt the team played well and that this young team is continually growing.

“I thought [the game] went well,” Wetzel said. “It being our third game, we’re still trying to get the hang of things. I [also] thought we played a lot better tonight, connecting passes [to teammates].”

With the team’s success in this game, Wetzel believes that this result can help the team to accomplish larger goals later in the season.

“We want to win [the Kaw Valley] league. We want to do our best in every single game and this is a step in the right direction and a good step to start [in] winning league.”

The next game for the girls soccer team is at home against Piper on Thursday, April 9.
