Havelock can't slow down Jacksonville

The Cardinals got on the board when Jordyn Hayden sent a pass from the middle of the field to Scott, who managed to tuck the ball just under Havelock keeper Amanda Alexander for a 1-0 lead.

Later in the half, Alexander made two saves on breakaways, helping keep the Rams in it with eight saves in the first half.

“She had some great saves in that first half,” Harris said. “She really played some good ball.”

Jacksonville totaled 21 shots on goal, while the Rams totaled 12, seven coming in the first half.

The Rams are next scheduled to play West Carteret Thursday at Havelock High in their last match before the Easter break.

“We’ve got to get everything put back together,” Harris said of the injuries that have caused him to shuffle his lineup. “If we win that one and go into spring break 3-3 in the conference and then we can come out of spring break with everybody healthy and everybody back, you’ll see a whole different side of the Havelock Rams team.

“We’re still having a good season. It’s not where we were hoping to be, but we’ve now played three major games missing three major players, and that makes it tough.”
