OTTOVILLE — The Jefferson girls soccer program is seeking to take its place amongst the elite in the Tri-County area.
Based on the Lady Wildcats’ 4-0 victory over long-time power Ottoville Thursday night on a wet Ottoville Soccer Stadium pitch, they are on their way.
“We possessed the ball probably 75 percent of the time. That was due to paying attention to details, especially passing, communicating, moving, everything that we have worked on in the off-season and pre-season,” Jefferson head coach Josiah Stober said. “I didn’t have to do a lot of yelling because the girls were talking so well; that is so much better. We had two great days of practice the last two days to prepare for this match and you could see it tonight. Ottoville is a good program and I think this was one of the better matches I’ve seen in a long time, especially by us. It was a nice team win. We had several girls that if they didn’t play the entire way, played 95 percent; we’ve focused on the mental part of playing through the tiredness.”
The Red and White did all their damage in a 10-minute span.
Ottoville head man Tim Kimmett gave all the credit to the foe.
