Sport – Soccer

School – Mankato West

Jacob was the star of the game as the Scarlets advanced to the Class 1A boys soccer state tournament with a 4-3 overtime victory against Worthington in the Section 2 title game.

Be fitting his status as one of five finalists for the Class 1A Mr. Soccer award, Jacob scored three goals. He won the game with a penalty-kick goal early in overtime, marking his first-ever game-winning goal in extra time.

Congratulations to Jacob Makela for being this week’s Old Dutch Quality Athlete of the Week.
