Lady Jackets whip Frankfort to open district play

The Woodford County High School girls' soccer team crushed Frankfort 10-0 Saturday, Sept. 8 at Capitol View Park. The win was the second of the season for the Lady Jackets. The Lady Jackets dominated the entire contest without allowing a shot attempt defensively. Woodford blitzed the Lady Panthers with goals early in the first half and held a 4-0 lead within the first 8 minutes. WCHS senior Jasmine Collins scored first on an assist from junior Emma Oberlander. WCHS junior Isabella Sarantonio tallied the second score, and fellow junior Mackenzie Tucker scored a pair of goals back to back. "A game like this is huge because it helped boost our morale," said WCHS junior Isabel Taylor. "We came together and played as a team today, and that's a feeling we hope to embrace more in the future. We want to step to the ball more and put in that extra effort that can help us win." WCHS junior Carter Hays scored on a pair of goals, and Tucker added two more goals to get the hat trick. WCHS sophomore Kamari Black recovered from a big collision with the Lady Panther keeper to come back in the game and scored a goal in the second half. WCHS freshman Anna Hawkins added a goal for the Lady Jackets. Oberlander led the Lady Jackets with three assists. "Tonight was nice because we were able to get everyone some extra minutes," said WCHS Coach Sara Thornton. "I think mentally, our team needed a game like this for our spirits. "We are getting closer to being a full team with injured players coming back. We are working on this feeling of positivity and building on it day by day." On Wednesday, Sept. 5, the Last Jackets lost 2-0 at Frederick Douglass High School. The Lady Jackets travel back to Capitol View Park Saturday, Sept. 15, when they will face Western Hills in a district showdown.
