More close losses for JV

While Davie’s varsity soccer team was mostly helpless during a one-win season, the JV was competitive just about every time out. The problem is it was absolutely snakebit.

After a 2-0 loss at Parkland, the young War Eagles fell short 2-1 at home against Glenn. It was the sixth one-goal loss of the season.

Hector Rodriguez had the goal as the JV finished 5-12-1 overall and 1-11-1 in the Central Piedmont Conference. The goal leaders for the season were Andy Longares (12), Rodriguez (six) and Isaiah Beaty (five).
