A late first-half goal followed by two more at the start of the second was not enough for Fenix House (2-1-0) in U-10 Whitehorse Minor Soccer at FH Collins Secondary on Wednesday.
Jacobs Industries (2-1-1) held on to take a 4-3 win after almost dropping a three-goal lead.
“I think the weather took us out of the game – they guys were pretty cold,” said Fenix House coach Mike Kearney, of his team’s first loss of the season. “We were all shaking.”
Helping put Jacobs on top was striker Jamie Philips-Freeman, scoring all his team’s goals.
“He’s a crazy goal-scorer – he’s a great striker,” said Jacobs coach Dean Faragher. “He has a knack for scoring, for sure.
“I coach him in development too, so he’s really good.”
The four goals make 10 in total for Philips-Freeman over the last two games. So what makes the forwards such a force to be reckoned with on the pitch?
“Experience, probably,” said Philips-Freeman.
While Philips-Freeman put his team on the board, Jacobs MVP Logan McDougall, helped keep Felix off it, playing in net for the second half.
“He’s a good goalie,” said Faragher. “He played well for us and made some nice stops. He was in the game.”
Scoring for Felix was Cole McCulloch and Allisan Swann with two, getting the MVP nod.
“She had a great game,” said Kearney. “She was in the play the whole time and made some great kicks. It was a real stand-out game for her.”
