WALWORTH — Aaron Heine scored two goals and Brayan Loyo added a goal in Jefferson’s 3-0 victory over Big Foot in a regional final on Thursday.
Heine broke a scoreless tie with a goal off an assist from Raul Perez at the 53-minute mark. Loyo converted a penalty kick at 81 minutes and Heine added a late goal with two minutes left in regulation off Byran Loyo’s assist.
Dylan Schroedl made four saves for the Eagles (5-4-1), who take on Lomira in a sectional semifinal at Fort Atkinson High School on Saturday.
“We had a perfect game tonight against Big Foot,” Jefferson boys soccer coach Samuel El-Beri said. “We held possession throughout the game. Big Foot ran out of options because my boys kept the pressure all game. We scored first on a perfect header flick by Aaron that found the back the net.
“On the second goal, Aaron was making a move in box when he got taken out, so Bryan made the penalty kick. I was very proud of the team the way they responded. That win means a lot for Jefferson’s soccer program. We never won a regional final ever, so this game was very important to our soccer team.”
