Reaching double digits in wins wasn’t easy this week for the Washington soccer Lady Jays.

Washington (10-2, 3-0) remained unbeaten in GAC Central action with a 3-0 win over Ft. Zumwalt East Tuesday and a 2-1 victory in penalty kicks over Ft. Zumwalt South on Thursday.

The Lady Jays played Friday afternoon in Sullivan.

Ft. Zumwalt East

Freshman Cassidy Nurnberger had a part in all three of Washington’s goals Tuesday in a 3-0 GAC Central home victory over Ft. Zumwalt East.

Nurnberger scored once and assisted on the other two Washington goals.

Junior Martha Noelker put the Lady Jays on top with the game’s opening goal and Washington never looked back. It was 2-0 at the half and the Lady Jays added a second half marker from Cassidy Nurnberger.

“Cassidy made a great run down the wing and found Martha cutting into the middle from her wing,” Washington Head Coach Chris Lanemann said.

The other Washington goal came from senior Halee Nurnberger.

Senior Brianna Pagan assisted on Cassidy Nurnberger’s goal.

Senior Mary McGilvray stopped nine shots in goal for the shutout victory.

“Our defense played great in earning the shut-out with Mary McGilvray playing all 80 minutes,” Lanemann said. “I thought our center mids did a great job in controlling possession for us. Overall it was a very good game for the girls in beating a good Zumwalt East team.”

Lanemann said the Lady Jays were able to exploit a speed advantage on the wings.

“The last couple years they have had our number, so I knew it was going to be a great challenge for us,” Lanemann said. “Our team speed played a huge role in this win. Their wingbacks just couldn’t keep up with Martha Noelker, Cassidy Nurnberger and Bailey Carico, so we were able to create a lot of scoring chances from the wings.”

Josie Battles made nine saves in goal for the Lady Lions (2-8, 1-1).

Ft. Zumwalt South

Washington was able to persevere Thursday in a penalty kicks win over Ft. Zumwalt South, 2-1.

The game was tied 1-1 at the half and neither team was able to score in the second half or in the overtime sessions.

All of Washington’s goals in the game came via penalty kicks.

Senior Salena Pottebaum was brought down in the box with 15:54 left in the first half. Pagan stepped to the spot and converted.

With 14:16 left in the half, Ft. Zumwalt South’s Stacie Muehling stepped into a clearing effort following a corner kick and blasted the ball into the net to tie it.

While both teams had scoring chances, neither could score again until penalty kicks settled the outcome.

Washington won the penalty kicks by outscoring Ft. Zumwalt South, 4-2. Those four successful kicks made the final game score 2-1. Information on who scored the goals was not available as of press time Friday.
