The Lady Jackets won, lost and tied in their three games Friday and Saturday at the SNU Soccer Complex.

The tie came in the Lady Jackets’ first game when Dove Science and KHS scored one goal apiece early Friday morning.

The goal came on Maitland Pickle’s corner kick in the second half.

Paige Yeoman had 13 saves that afternoon, but the Lady Jackets couldn’t muster any goals in a 3-0 loss to Cache.
