FORT JENNINGS — With the tournament season less than three weeks away, soccer teams are looking to get healthy and start clicking.
Jefferson and Fort Jennings were the two girls soccer units that matched up on a dreary, windy and damp Tuesday afternoon at Fort Jennings Outdoor Soccer Complex.
The Lady Musketeers used their depth and speed to overwhelm the undermanned Lady Wildcats 10-1 in non-conference action.
The Musketeers (6-1-3) dominated the shots on-goal 22-5, with Jefferson senior goalkeeper Paige Miller stopping 11 shots and Lady Musketeer senior netminder grabbing one save (3 shots) and sophomore Erin Osting two (2 shots).
“Down to 13 players (from a season start of 16), we were a bit overmatched today. It’s tough to go against a good team like Fort Jennings, with their depth, speed and skill,” Jefferson coach Josiah Stober acknowledged. “We try to keep the girls in shape, plus during matches, we pick our spots as to when we can get girls a rest. Some of them don’t leave the field. We keep fighting, no matter what.”
Fort Jennings mentor Rodney Wagner figured his team’s speed was the decisive factor.
