The Joplin Eagles took the victory in an Ozark Conference Match on Friday. In the Varsity game, the Eagles won 7-0. Joplin scored 5 goals in the first half. In the second half, the Lady Zizzers played harder and did a better job of communicating with each other and marking up defensively. The girls had “more fun” in the second half. Patsy Moss and Rachel Marcak played aggressively and Chelsey Simmons won several balls out of the air. As a team, the second half was much better than the first half.

In the JV game, Joplin came out on top 1-0. The goal came in the second half as a Joplin player took a shot that hit off of a West Plains player and went in the goal. The girls played a good game. They played hard and played together. The goal was a tough one to give up.

Next up will be the final games of the regular season at Home on Tuesday against Parkview. JV will start at 5:00pm.
