The Jacksonville College Lady Jaguar soccer team continued to put Region 14 on notice by putting up a spirited fight against conference rival Navarro College, ranked No. 2 in the latest NJCAA poll.
Navarro was able to pulled out a 1-0 win over the Lady Jags, who are in just their first year of existence, Thursday afternoon at Bill McRae Field, but the JC women let the Navarro gals know that they had been in a battle.
The match was tied 0-0 at the halfway point.
Navarro got on the board with about 12 minutes left in the match, but the Lady Jags continued to mount a fight until the final horn.
With just under 50 seconds left to play, JC's Amanda Cabrera, a freshman out of Longview, put up a nice shot that caromed off of the cross bar, as the Lady Jags just missed sending the match into a bonus session.
The Lady Jags (4-9, 2-5 Region 14) are scheduled to end their season at 5 p.m. this evening when they take on Tyler Junior College in the Rose City.
Men: Jacksonville College 3, Mountain View 3 (2 OT)
On Friday evening teams from JC and Mountain View College of Dallas tangled in Jacksonville in a non-conference match that eventually ended in a 3-3 draw after two periods of overtime had been played.
Mountain View (4-3-2) punched in a couple of late goals to move in front 3-2, before JC's NeShaun Senior, a sophomore form Maypen, Jamaica, scored on a bicycle kick with about 30 seconds left in regulation that ended up sending the match into overtime.
Neither team was able to penetrate the nets in the bonus rounds.
The JC men will take a 2-8-2, 1-5 Region 14, record into tonight's Region 14 match at Tyler Junior College (7 p.m.).
