Varsity Soccer Wears Purple Honoring Melanie Jones in Win Over Minor

Minor exited Driver Stadium on Wednesday night scoreless as the Gardendale Varsity Soccer team stifled Minor on defense while 4 Rockets made goals, including a hat trick (3 goals) from Tanner Dill, in route to a 6-0 win.

Joseph Price, Mario Castro and Renee Martinez all added one goal each to go along with Dill’s 3.

Chris Bates started and finished as goalkeeper on the night as the Rockets ended the game with a clean sheet.

The Rockets honored beloved GHS teacher, Melanie Jones, who lost her battle with cancer this week, by wearing purple straps around their soccer cleats.
