JEFFERSON’S girls’ soccer team has taken care of business in its last two games but not with the efficiency that coach Todd Parker would have liked.
Granted, the Lady Dragons (5-1, 3-0) won decisively over East Hall and Elbert County. But Parker is preaching consistency this week as his team prepares for an important Friday intra-county showdown with East Jackson.
“Our last two games haven’t been up to our performance,” Parker said. “So what we’re going to work on this week is playing up to our level.”
Jefferson is currently riding a four-game winning streak.
Stephanie Lamm scored three goals and Carolyn Carreno added two as Jefferson coasted to an 8-0 win Monday over Elbert County at home.
Lamm is on a roll offensively with eight goals in her last two games.
Hannah Pasko also scored while Jefferson got its two other scores from Elbert County on-goals as the Lady Dragons remained undefeated in subregion play.
Still, Parker was hoping his team would finish better offensively against Elbert County, pointing out that his team took 31 shots on goal against the struggling Lady Blue Devils.
But Jefferson continues to win.
Prior to the win over Elbert County, the Lady Dragons got five goals from Lamm Friday in a 7-3 rout of East Hall. Carreno and Amanda Brattain each added one goal.
With those lopsided wins, Jefferson is currently half a game out of first in 8-AA South with a 3-0 record. East Jackson is 2-0 in subregion play.
Which brings the Lady Dragons to this Friday.
Jefferson was missing three starters Monday but Parker expects they’ll be ready to go Friday against the rival Lady Eagles.
“I just hope that both teams are 100 percent,” Parker said.
