Additionally, the Marauders have picked up two convincing wins against district opponents, not allowing a single goal in both games. With an overall record of 8-1, the Marauders will look to keep this momentum going during the final stretch of the season. The team’s next game is a home contest on Friday, January 11th against the Episcopal School of Jacksonville.
The girls’ team has been just as impressive, as it holds the #2 ranking in all of Class 1A in Florida. With an overall record of 10-1-1, the Marauders have won four straight and have picked up 3 dominant wins against district opponents John Paul II and Lafayette. With only five games left, the team will look to finish its season on a high note as it prepares for postseason competition.
