Jac-Cen-Del Boys Varsity Soccer beat Rising Sun 5-0.

This was a very important game for us on our schedule. If we won we would go 5 points up in the conference race, but if we lost we would be down 1 point and still have to go to Rising Sun and play.

The boys came out ready to play tonight and we were able to score 2 goals in the first 3 minutes. That really set the tone for the game, we were able to play much more relaxed with a 2 goal lead. I think this is probably the best 80 minutes of soccer we have played this season.

Rising Sun has a couple of very talented offensive players that are capable of scoring a lot of goals. I felt out defense did a great job of keeping them contained in this game.

JCD Goals. Jacob Jines – 2 and Yuki Yamashita – 2. 

Assists. Morgan Sutton -1; Jacob Jines – 1; Ryan Wilson – 1; and Jordan Meyer – 1.
