The J-M men’s soccer team won their opening round game of the 2A state playoffs on Wednesday against Currituck County. After a scoreless first half, J-M’s Elmer Alvarez scored first in the second half to give the Jets a 1-0 lead. However, Currituck would later tie the game and force extra time after no one was able to score a winning goal in regulation. In the second ten minutes of extra time Franklin Gomez found the back of the net off of a corner kick from Kevin Sifuentes and this goal would prove to be the winning goal as J-M won 2-1. J-M will travel to Franklinton (19-2-1) on Saturday for a tough matchup.
