A 12-0 rout of Edison High School last Friday pushed the Falls Church High School varsity girls lacrosse team's winning streak to five games and sends the Jaguars into the home stretch of their season on a hot streak.

A sustained attack and domination in the face-off circle led six goals in the first half and another half-dozen in the second half for Falls Church as the Jags breezed to the win. Seniors Valerie Gibbons and Jessica Thatcher each scored four goals to lead the charge, while junior Jackie Jubien added three for a hat trick of her own. Junior Sarah Kane accounted for the other Falls Church tally.

Junior Bridget Drain and Hannah Wilkerson split time between the pipes for Falls Church, with each turning aside two shots to earn the shutout.

“We played well against Edison,” Falls Church Head Coach Sabrina Yarie said. “It was our third game last week and to come away with three wins is a great accomplishment.”

The Jaguars faced Westfield on the road Wednesday, April 23, but results were not available at press time. On April 26, Falls Church faces Lee High School and begins a stretch of three district games over five days, including a Senior Day match against Yorktown at home on April 28.
