The First and Second Grade Fredericktown Girl-illas soccer team competed in the JAOSA Fourth Annual Fall Kickoff Classic in Jackson, Oct. 18-19 and brought home a second place finish.
The local team opened the tournament with a 1–0 loss to a Jackson team, but quickly turned the tide winning the next two, 2–0 over another Jackson team, and 6–0 over the Cape Minions. Goals were scored by Braelynn Sarakas, Lauren Hale, Callie Allgier, PJ Reutzel, and Oslynn O’Brien. The outstanding defensive performances from Chloe Wojtzcuk, Livee McFadden, Anna Tripp, Aiana McLaughlin, and Nina Lewis held opponents to just one goal in three games.
The Girl-illas will be back in action Oct. 25-26 in The Bank of Missouri Perryville Cup Tournament in Perryville.
