Junior Nia Stallings, 13, outside mid for Jags soccer team.

The Jags were coming into this game with extreme motivation to keep their winning ways going, and to stay at the top. They defeated Macarthur for their first district win and now they faced Churchill trying to get their second. It started slow and the first half ended in a draw, 0-0, and no action had really happened yet. The Jags came out of halftime ready to go and attacked on every possession. Nia Stallings scored early into the second half; but it was called back on an offsides call, still with the score at 0-0. Midway through the second half the Jags were on a breakaway when there was penalty inside the box, which resulted in a penalty kick. The Jags elected Amber Stearns to take the kick and they were on the board 1-0. Churchill however fought back and got many shots on goal but were unable to capitalize on any of them. Around the four minute mark, Tiana Soulas put another goal in the back of the net, sealing the game and securing the Jags with a win. The final score of this match was 2-0 and Morgan Stearns’ return had a major impact on the game keeping Churchill scoreless.

They are now sitting at a record of 8-3-2 and are on pace for another district championship still making themselves the team to beat. Expectations are always high for the Jags and so far they are living up to those expectations. For the remaining schedule this year they will be tested in district and will look to prevail as champions. They will face their district foe Reagan next tuesday,19, in the famous Fincke Cup. Reagan will be their biggest test in district so far, and also the most meaningful game.
