Arizona-committed forward Jackie Stanco, earned six points across two wins during the final week of the regular season. Stanco first notched two goals and an assist in a 4-1 win over SJS rival Davis on Feb. 7. She added another assist in the team’s regular season final, a 3-0 shutout of Franklin-Elk Grove.
The strong finish allowed St. Francis to finish the season with an 18-2-3 overall record, good enough for the top seed in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division II playoffs.
Stanco closed out the regular season with a team-best 17 goals, along with four assists. The Troubadours received a first-round bye and will play their first postseason match on Feb. 21.
