It took Megan Hudgens a small amount of time to make a big impact for the Fellowship Christian girls’ soccer team.

Hudgens enjoyed an outstanding freshman season last year in which she led the team in scoring with 28 goals and helped guide Fellowship to a runner-up finish in the Class A state playoffs.

The sophomore striker has picked up where she left off with 17 goals to lead the Paladins, the second-ranked team in the latest Eurosport Class A poll.

Hudgens has put together a couple of hat tricks [three-goal games] – the latest coming in a 4-1 victory over Pinecrest last Tuesday.

Despite her youth as a sophomore, Hudgens is a soccer veteran – having gained valuable experience with the Concorde Fire club team.

“She’s played more soccer than most kids her age will,” Fellowship Christian coach Trip Hughes said. “She’s played on a very high level. She’s played a ton of soccer. When the game gets hard, she has the experience to focus on the job at hand. She might as well be a senior with all the experience she had. She’s been there and done that.”
