MOUNT VERNON — The Mount Vernon Yellow Jackets girls soccer team showed a lot of effort as it began OCC play against one of the conference favorites on Tuesday.

However, no amount of effort could match the talent that the Olentangy Orange Pioneers displayed.

As a result, the Jackets dropped a 5-0 decision that extended the team’s winless record to three games.

“This was a tough opponent to play. But we played our heart out,” said Mount Vernon head coach Vit Streska. “I’m very proud of every single one of them.”

Despite the effort, the match was one-sided from the start. The Jackets were outshot, 26-1, allowing 12 shots on goal. At one point, the Pioneers had a stretch of over 20 out of 22 minutes with the ball in the Jackets’ side of the field.
