Tuesday night's soccer match-up between the Kingston Lady Jackets and the Sunbright Lady Tigers was an overwhelming 12-0 win for the Lady Jackets.

“We played well against a very young team (Sunbright),” Kingston head coach Elik Pickell said after the game. “We got our younger girls plenty of playing time and we just have to get ready for the next game.” 

Kingston scored two minutes into the game on a Katie Wattenbarger goal with Brooke Bales picking up the assist to make the score 1-0. Four minutes later, Wattenbarger was at it again with a Kelli Allen assist.

Five minutes into the second half, Delaney Ethridge scored to make it 6-0, and then five minutes later, she scored again to make it 7-0 with Emma Tobin picking up the assist.

Bunch got in on the scoring action for the Jackets two minutes later to boost the lead to 8-0 on a Tobin assist. Madison Eblen scored next for the Lady Jackets with a Hannah Owings assist to make it 9-0. 

Bunch scored once again to make it 10-0 on a Jamie Strader assist.
