DELPHOS — A more veteran-savvy Jefferson girls soccer unit took advantage of a far younger Van Wert crew, opening the 2014 campaign with a 13-0 mashing of the Lady Cougars on a brilliant Monday late afternoon at the St. John’s Annex.
“It was a nice season-opening match for us. Van Wert usually is a good one but they are such a young and inexperienced team right now; they will get better,” Jefferson coach Josiah Stober said. “We got off really well. What I liked was how the things we’ve been working on: communication, movement, just basic fundamentals; we took from practice and executed on the field. We were really moving the ball well and that set up a lot of breakaways. It wasn’t just one or two girls that did it all but a number of them contributed. We know we have a lot more work to do but this is a nice way to get it going.”
