The FHS girls varsity soccer team built a 2-0 lead in the first half and were able to hold on for a 3-2 victory over Perryville Thursday at Festus Stadium. The win improves the Tigers’ record to 7-6 on the season, 2-1 in conference play.
Jordan Oetting (12) scored two goals for the Tigers in the first half to give Festus the lead. Lauren Graham (10) assisted on one of the goals.
