For the first time in a few years, the Borgia soccer Lady Knights have earned Town Derby bragging rights.

Junior Jenna Hellebusch scored in the third minute of action Wednesday at Rauch Field to help the visiting Borgia Lady Knights (5-3) defeat the host Washington Lady Jays (7-7-1, 2-2), 1-0. Hellebusch was able to lob a shot from the left side over Washington senior goalkeeper Andrea Bourne and that turned out to be the only goal in the game.

The play developed on the left side with senior Jessica Diermann earning the assist.

“It was a physical game once again and emotions were running high due to the girls knowing each other and being so close by,” Borgia Head Coach Jeff Hill said.

Washington Head Coach Chris Lanemann said that conditions played a role in the goal.

“The sun played a large part in the goal,” Lanemann said. “At halftime Andrea told me that she just lost it in the sun.”

But, from there, the defenses took over. A pair of Avila University recruits, who signed earlier in the afternoon, anchored their respective defensive units.

Borgia, paced by Jodi Hellebusch, held off the Lady Jays.

“She is a rock-solid defender,” Hill said. “Nobody ever gets around her, with the ball. She is very fast, has a great sense for when to attack the oncoming player and plays the angles like a pool shark. She is very excited about playing in college and I know she will be successful. Avila has just made their team better by signing Jodi.”

Washington, anchored by Hannah Overschmidt, kept the Lady Knights at bay the rest of the game as well. Overschmidt recently has returned from injury.

“Our defense with Hannah Overschmidt, Brittany Monroig, Taylor Andrews, and Sierra Thibault had a good game,” Lanemann said. “Andrea Bourne played good in goal, giving up just the one goal.”

Lanemann said the Lady Jays slowed Borgia’s offense after the early goal.

“We were able to stop them the rest of the game because everything went to Emily Grahl, so we just concentrated on stopping her,” Lanemann said. “For the game, I believe they only had three or four shots on goal. In the second half I think they got the ball into our half maybe three times.”

Borgia senior Mackenzie Haddox made eight saves to earn the shutout, although the Lady Jays did put the ball into the back of the net once.

“They had some good scoring chances but Mackenzie played great in goal making eight saves,” Hill said.

“We did score a goal, on a head ball by Anneliese Baer, that was waved off due to some sort of foul being called,” Lanemann said. “It was the fourth goal we have had called back on us this year, which is very disappointing. However, even with the goal being disallowed the girls continued to pressure Borgia. We just have to be better in the attacking third.”

Hill said Borgia had another strong chance as Grahl earned a breakaway midway through the first half. She went down in the box, but the officials ruled it to be a clean play.

“Emily Gahl had a breakaway that looked like she got caught from behind somehow,” Hill said. “That’s the way it goes.”

Lanemann credited Washington’s midfield in the game.

“We did a great job with our midfield moving the ball up to the attacking third, but we just stalled there every time,” said Lanemann. “I thought Abbey Martin, Anneliese Baer, Brianna Pagan and Liz Brinkmann all had a very good game in the midfield.”


Borgia defeated Sullivan at home Thursday night, 7-0. Further information on the game was not available as of press time.

Washington Games

Washington lost GAC North games Tuesday at Ft. Zumwalt East 2-1 and Thursday at home to Ft. Zumwalt South, 4-1.

The Lady Jays took a 1-0 lead over FZE in the first half when Brianna Pagan scored on a shot from approximately 30 yards away. Jenna Barnhart had the assist.

Bourne played all 80 minutes in goal.

Ft. Zumwalt East (10-2, 1-0) had the game tied 1-1 at halftime and scored the only goal of the second half.

“I thought we played pretty well overall. It was a very tough, physical game, as they always are against Ft. Zumwalt East,” Lanemann said. “We continued to play pretty well after we took the lead, but we made two mistakes that led to Ft. Zumwalt East goals.”

Barnhart scored the Lady Jays’ goal against Ft. Zumwalt South on an assist from Martha Noelker.

Mary McGilvray was in goal for the entire contest.

“Anyone watching the game would have thought the score was reversed. We carried at least 75 percent of the play and controlled the ball for most of the game,” Lanemann said. “Three of their goals were scored on mistakes after they played kick and run. If we would have been smarter just on those three plays, you are talking about a tie game. That’s why we play the games and goals like that count. The last 20 minutes of the game we had constant pressure. Their goalie came up with some big saves. We improved greatly with our movement on and off the ball. I was very happy and encouraged.”
