The East Jackson girls’ soccer team has not been known to light-up the scoreboard in 2017.
But they did just that Friday night in their 10-0, mercy rule victory over Franklin County. Jissel Garcia and Rachel Wegesend led the way with two goals each. Garcia put another ball off a Franklin County defender to get credited with an own-goal assist as well.
“It wasn’t a great performance but we played pretty good, we had a few girls playing positions they never get to play, having a little fun which is always a good thing,” coach Kirk Childress said. “We’ve had a few injuries and we were finally able to have everyone on the roster available so we’re finally able to play together again.”
