Jenilee Worley’s goal off a corner kick in overtime gave Jefferson County High’s girls soccer team a 2-1 win over Morristown West Tuesday, and the regular season District 2-AAA championship.

The Lady Patriots dominated play, sending 40 shots toward the West goal during the game. But they had trouble finishing their 19 shots on goal, and held just a 1-0 lead with about six minutes left, when a foul in the box gave West a penalty kick. The Lady Trojans converted, sending the game to overtime.
