Jennings' four goals leads Logan girls soccer past Western

Logansport’s Whitney Jennings keeps adding on to her legend.

Playing on a bum ankle, the basketball superstar was still the best athlete on the field Thursday in a girls soccer match against Western.

Jennings had a hat trick by halftime and finished with four goals in the game to lift the Berries to a 4-3 win over the Panthers at the LHS soccer field.

She now has eight goals in two games on the season.

“It’s my final year of sports in high school so I’m just ready to go out every game and play my hardest and see what happens,” Jennings said.

After the game she downplayed her injury, suffered in Tuesday’s game at Frankfort, but she was walking with a noticeable limp throughout.

“It’s just a sprained ankle, minor sprain, I’ll be OK,” she said. “Nothing too serious.”

Jennings plans to play in Saturday’s game at Plymouth, as long as girls basketball coach Jerry Hoover doesn’t intervene.

“Just tape it up I’ll be fine,” she said.

Jennings’ fourth goal of the game on an assist by Bailey Graham came just five minutes into the second half to give the Berries a 4-1 lead.

But the Panthers would strike twice over the next 17 minutes, the second of which on a goal by Emma Harbaugh brought them to within 4-3 with 18 minutes left to play.

The Berry fans had to buckle on their seatbelts over the remainder of the game, but their team was able to snuff out any danger the rest of the way.

Logan coach Todd Reiff said he knew it would be a big challenge to beat Western. The Panthers were coming off a 10-0 win over a Frankfort squad Wednesday that gave the Berries problems in a 5-2 win on the road on Tuesday.
