The JV Blue did an outstanding job as well, playing up in an unexpected varsity bracket holding their own by barely missing a winning opportunity, score 0-1, to a varsity Eaton squad to tie Lake Worth's varsity 2-2. The JV Gold squad defeated Lake Worth's JV A 7-0 in a powerful win. Looking for great things from these sub varsity teams as they challenge and defeat their opponents this season.
