After losing their season opener, the Lady Seahawks girls soccer team have clipped off five consecutive wins, and now sit atop the district with a perfect 3-0 mark.

Highlighting their streak was a thrilling 1-0 win Tuesday night at the Mikel Clark Sports Complex in a non-district match-up against John Paul II, the team that had handed the Franklin County girls a 4-1 loss in Tallahassee in the season opener.

An assist from junior Gracyn Kirvin on a goal by junior Jessica Shields accounted for the lone score, as coach Kelli Wright’s squad was able to avenge its only loss this season.

In the Lady Seahawks’ home opener Friday night against the Baker Lady Gators, the team secured its third consecutive district match.

The Lady Seahawks did not wait long for their first goal of the match.  Three minutes in, Shields served up a corner kick which senior Stephanie Marxsen put in the back of the net for her first goal of the season.

Shortly after, sophomore Katie Seger played a beautiful through ball to Kirvin for the second goal of the match.

Just before the half, Shields earned her second assist of the game on a pass to Kirvin, which gave the Lady Seahawks a 3-1 lead.
