The Jayhawks won their opening game of the Region XII tournament against a scrappy Jackson College team by a score of 1-0. It was a back and forth game with both teams utilizing a counter-attack throughout most of the 90-minute game. Even though both teams had quality scoring chances, the first half ended scoreless. In the 77th minute, Yojaira Campos (West Ottawa HS) was able to beat her defender into the penalty box, dribble towards the goal and find Emily Winicki (Fruitport HS) who was making a run in the middle. Winicki one-timed it into the back of the net for her 7th game-winner of the season. Jenna Jenke (Newaygo HS) had a solid night in goal to preserve the shutout.
The Jayhawks face off against host Schoolcraft College on Sunday at 3:00 pm in the championship game.
