“I was nervous,” Jays soccer coach Eddie Horn said. “Everybody expected us to win. For us to lose this game would have been a huge disappointment.”

There was little reason to worry. Jefferson City outshot Camdenton 23-2 on Thursday night and posted a 3-0 victory against the Lakers in the Class 3 District 10 championship game at the 179 Soccer Park.

With the win, Jefferson City (19-8) advances to Tuesday night’s sectional game against Rock Bridge (19-7-1). The 19th win ties Jefferson City’s single-season record. Rock Bridge defeated Blue Springs South 2-1 on Wednesday night to win the District 9 crown.

“We got off to a great start to the season, then went through a rough stretch before we seemed to have righted the ship again,” Horn said. “For us to lose, it would have been brutal.”
