JACKSONVILLE —

Jacksonville's 3-0 win over Diboll Friday coupled with Palestine defeating Nacogdoches, jetted the Fightin' Maidens back into first place in the District 35-4A girls soccer standings.

The Maidens' first goal came in the 27th minute and was scored by Lindsey Green, on an assist from Bea Romero. Jacksonville led 2-0 at halftime after Callie Reagan deposited the ball into the net with about six minutes to go in the opening segment. Rachel Stirneman picked up an assist on the play

The Maidens added an insurance goal in the second half when Kennison Chambless booted the ball into the twine, with Shannon Chilton getting the assist.

“It was a hard fought match,” Jacksonville head coach, Kiff Wiemers, said. “Now we have to go over to Palestine Tuesday and win again. The winner of that match will be the first place team at the end of the night.”

Jacksonville will return home Friday to host Lufkin Hudson at 6 p.m. (varsity only) in what will be Jacksonville Soccer Association Night at the Tomato Bowl.
