Soccer: Former Maiden standout fitting in well at No.2-ranked TJC


TYLER — Alexia Moreira was always a player of impact during her fruitful playing days as a Jacksonville Fightin' Maiden.

Moreira has taken her game up Highway 69 to Tyler Junior College; a team that is currently ranked No. 2 in the latest NJCAA Division I Women's Soccer Poll.

The 5-foot-11 midfielder has started all four of the Apache Ladies' matches.

She has two assists, four shots on goal and is still looking for her first goal as a collegiate player.

TJC will continue Region XIV play with matches at Northeast Texas Community College (Mount Pleasant) on Friday and at Paris Junior College on Saturday.
