Wright County Conference leader Watertown-Mayer (4-0 WCC, 5-0 overall) marked three first half goals to improve its position atop the league with a 4-0 victory over Jordan/Belle Plaine last Thursday, Sept. 10, in Jordan.
The Jaguars had two shots on goal and fell to 0-2 in the Wright County and 1-3 overall.
The Jaguars have a pair of unbeaten teams on the schedule this week, including a trip to
New Prague (2-0, 3-0) on Tuesday, Sept. 15. (Results were unavailable at press time.)
On Thursday, Sept. 17, #4 Orono (2-0-1, 2-0-2) visits Jordan for a 5 p.m. tilt.
Head coach Dennis Yunke indicated that the Jaguars’ early season schedule has provided little mercy.
“In our last three games, we have played teams with at least 12 wins last season, and all three are starting out strong this year,” Yunke said.
Yunke added that the team has lost two of its starting forwards to season-ending injuries, and there are two other starters with nagging injuries that is hampering the team’s success.
“The Wright (County) Conference is very tough,” Yunke said.
Jordan/Belle Plaine’s Thursday foe, Orono, was the runner-up in last year’s Class A state tournament.
