George Jenkins celebrates Thursday night at Bryant Stadium after beating Lakeland on penalties to win the Class 6A, District 6 women's soccer title.

LAKELAND — George Jenkins fell to the Tampa Catholics on January 6, sitting 3-8-2 after a dismal season marred by injuries to key players. Head coach Jake Maloney couldn’t have his best 11 players on the field at the same time.

The Eagles have proven that it’s not how they start, it’s how they finish.

Healthier — still missing a key player like Siena Ferry — George Jenkins has been 5-0-1 in his last six games, and his recent wins are the sweetest.

Georgiana Strawbridge made up the last penalty kick to give Jenkins victory in the championship match for Class 6A of the District 6 Women’s Football Tournament.
