For the second straight day, Junction City girls soccer traveled back to Hummer Sports Park in Topeka and after getting a big 8-0 win over Topeka West on Thursday, the Lady Jays (3-2) shut down Highland Park (0-5) on Friday, winning 7-0.

Junior Brooke Swango possibly turned in the half of the season offensively, putting up a four-goal haul all scored in the first 40 minutes. With the four goals scored, Swango has seven total for the season which leads the Lady Jays.

Seniors Vittoria Benoit and Mindy Lechuga-Nevarez and sophomore Sophia Holloway also each chipped in a goal of their own with Holloway’s coming in the second half after getting pulled from the goal.

Sophomore Arianna Gold assisted on two of the first-half goals and Lechuga-Nevarez had an assist in the second half.

Holloway and junior Jordyn Hunt combined for the shutout which was the third of the season for the Lady Jays.

Junction City will stay on the road for one more game when they play Hays (1-1) on Monday before returning home on Friday to face Emporia (4-2).
