Lady Jackets open up with double loss 

77

Wet and cold conditions welcomed the 2019 Lady Jackets season  with the game opener in Colusa on Dec, 2. Williams fell to a 6-2 loss. 

Back in action, last Thursday, Williams hosted the Esparto Spartans. Nayeli Contreras scored the Lady Jackets’ first goal of the game at the 27th minute of the first half, leaving the teams at 1-1 before the second half. 

“Our goalie, Trinity Tungasmita, did a great job containing the Spartans in the first half,” said Coach Kristi Hill. 

The Spartans came out strong offensively in the second half, scoring twice on Williams in the first five minutes of the last half. A tired Williams defense was no match for the Spartans as Esparto went on to claim a 3-1 win.

“We just lost our momentum,” stated Hill. “Its still early in the season and  with more practice, I know we will get stronger.” 

Lady Jacket soccer will return Jan 7, against Winters. The away conference match-up has a 3:15 PM scheduled start time. ■
