The Lady Eagles rebounded from a lopsided loss and beat Bishop Machebeuf 5-0 Wednesday at Bishop Machebeuf High School.
Faith Christian senior Caroline Jenkins went nuts, scoring four goals and singlehandedly dismantled the Buffaloes’ defense.
Jenkins, now recognized as one of the elite scorers in the state, already has 17 goals and 12 assists this season.
Senior Madison Batug scored the Eagles’ fifth goal and Faith Christian took a 3-0 lead into halftime.
Faith Christian’s big win was in response to a 4-0 loss to Kent Denver just a day before.
The Eagles competed with the Sun Devils early in the contest but Kent Denver kept pressuring Faith Christian’s defense until it finally broke through.
Kent Denver took a 2-0 lead into halftime and had four different goal scorers in the win — which was a big one in terms of league play.
The Sun Devils still sit on top of the Metro League 6 standings with their 5-1 league record, now comfortably ahead of Faith Christian at a 3-2 league record.
However, the Eagles’ 7-3 overall record is better than Kent Denver and every team in the league but Jefferson Academy, who owns an 8-2 overall record.
In addition, Faith Christian’s 45 goals are the second most in the league behind Jefferson Academy’s 63 goals.
The reason why the Eagles are not on top of their league standings has been their defense which has allowed 21 goals this season.
And while they have scored more than twice the amount of goals then they have given up this season, they have also given up the fifth most goals in their league.
Despite the loss the Eagles have won three of their last four games and in those wins Faith Christian has outscored its opponents 23-0.
The Eagles will play at Liberty Common Saturday at 11 p.m.
