The Washington High School girls soccer team leads the Eastern Plains Conference and face the top two challengers next week when play resumes after spring break.

The Pam Pack (10-1-1, 4-0) lead nemesis Farmville Central and North Pitt, both 3-1, by one game with six league games left. The Jaguars visit Tuesday, while WHS goes to North Pitt Thursday.

Farmville ended Washington’s 10-year reign atop the EPC last year with a pair of victories over the Pack and the first one was the first loss for WHS in 65 league matches dating back to 2013.

Sophomore Jamie Perez has scored a team-leading 20 goals, while senior Jesmelly Lugo has 12. Angelee Higuera has a team-high 11 assists.

The Southside girls are 5-6-2 and 1-0 in the Coastal Plains 1A conference. Junior Lilly Davis leads the Seahawks with 11 goals.

Southside has eight regular season games remaining, including five league contests. They face 2A East Carteret and Lejeune twice and finish the season at home against Northside.

The Panthers are 0-3 in their first season of girls soccer. Northside has a pair of matches with East Carteret and Lejeune plus the season finale at Southside remaining.
