In one of the biggest regular-season soccer matches of the year, No. 16 West Jessamine defeated No. 3 Assumption 4-0 Monday.
“That’s the best you can play right there. That’s just flat out getting it done right there,” West coach Kevin Wright said. “... That’s how you play soccer.”
The win was the Lady Colts’ (13-5-2) third win over a top-25 team this season and second inside of a week. West beat district foe No. 13 Lexington Catholic 2-1 on Saturday.
West took advantage of its opportunies early on, which were few and far between. The Lady Colts were grossly outshot by Asssumption (14-5-1) in the first half but found the net twice.
The first goal came just seven minutes into the match as senior Jenna Bird found junior Toria Howard.
Senior Kathryn Hale struck about 12 minutes later with some fancy footwork as she worked her way around Rocket defenders before putting the ball in the goal from a few feet out.
