EBER — The Wilmington High School girls soccer team defeated Miami Trace 4-1 Thursday in a South Central Ohio League match at Panther Stadium.
The Lady Hurricane got on the scoreboard early when Savannah Morgan scored in the sixth minute with assists going to Bradeanna Arehart and Jasmine Jamiel.
Morgan then assisted on Jamiel’s goal in the 20th minute as Wilmington took a 2-0 lead.
Miami Trace scored 11 seconds before halftime to cut the difference to 2-1.
Wilmington regained a two-goal margin on Morgan’s second of the match. Michelle Huffman fed Jamiel who gave the ball back to Morgan in the 53rd minute.
WHS rounded out the scoring in the 69th minute when Jordan Snarr passed to Jamiel who gave it to Huffman for the goal.
Coach Kerry Lewis said the first, third and fourth WHS goals were “all duplicates. Jazz played all three balls into the box from the right corner. Pretty soccer.”
Lewis said Jenna Victor keyed the WHS defensive effort as she “did a great job keeping MT out of our box.”
Because of injuries, freshman Petra Bray moved into the stopper position and played well, Lewis said. Jamiel put together her most complete game of the year.
“Jazz is really starting to figure things out tactically at just the right time,” Lewis said.
Bridgette Thompson, senior, “continues to be one of our most consistent players week in and week out,” said Lewis.
Wilmington is 5-2-1 overall and 5-1-1 in the SCOL.
