PITSBURG – The Franklin Monroe Lady Jets hosted the Lady Warriors of Northwestern High School in a non-conference soccer match on Saturday afternoon.
The visitors of the Central Buckeye Conference were looking to add to their current two-game winning streak, but FM got two goals each from Bryanna Diceanu and Chloe Brumbaugh to take down Northwestern 4-0.
“We played a little better today,” Lady Jets coach Scott Howell said. “Northwestern is a big, strong team from a bigger school. We had a good week of practice. We didn’t get beat to the ball, added a couple of players to the starting lineup.
“We didn’t change anything offensively,” Howell continued. “Moved the defense around a little bit. Wasn’t pleased with the amount of goals we gave up against Newton. Made some changes in the back, all older girls. They need to play strong.
“This was a good win for us,” Coach Howell concluded. “They beat us last year, but we still have a long way to go.”
The Lady Jets resume play Tuesday when they travel to Botkins for a match at 5 p.m. Franklin Monroe is now 4-1 on the season.
