Washington pushed its unbeaten streak to six games to start the girls soccer season with a dominating performance Thursday at Warrenton High School.

The Lady Jays (5-0-1) had the ball on their offensive side of the field for most of the game, scoring three goals in the first half and five in the second half for an 8-0 victory.

“We played well. In the first half, we had way too many chances that we left out there and didn’t finish. That’s been our problem in the first five games. Even though we haven’t lost, our biggest margin we’ve had is 4-1,” said Washington Head Coach Chris Lanemann. “It was nice to have this kind of game where we had nice passing and moved the ball really well. We picked it up. We started to play up to our speed.”

It was the third shutout of the season for the Lady Jays, who have not allowed more than one goal in any of their six games.

Anna Kelpe (first half) and Mary McGilvray (second half) combined for the shutout in goal.

Washington got on the scoreboard five minutes into the game when Brianna Pagan sent a corner kick to Halee Nurnberger, who headed the ball into the net for a goal.

Four minutes later, the Lady Jays made the score 2-0 when Martha Noelker scored on an assist from Pagan.

The third goal came in the 19th minute when Jenna Barnhart crossed the ball to Pagan, who found the back of the net.

There was no scoring in the final 21 minutes of the first half as Washington led 3-0 at intermission.

Six minutes into the second half, the Lady Jays scored again on a corner kick from Pagan to Nurnberger, increasing the lead to 4-0.

Pagan had one goal and three assists on Washington’s first four goals.

The Lady Jays scored four goals in the final 12 minutes of the game.

In the 69th minute, Noelker scored her second goal of the night to make the score 5-0.

One minute later, Savannah Thibault scored on an assist from Liz Brinkmann to increase the advantage to 6-0.

A goal by Arika Elliott in the 73rd minute pushed Washington’s lead to 7-0.

Salena Pottebaum then got in on the fun with a goal in the 79th minute to make the score 8-0.

Just for good measure, the Lady Jays also had two shots hit the crossbar during the second half.

“In the last 20 minutes of the first half, we were playing their speed. We weren’t playing fast. We picked it up in the second half and played faster. It worked out well,” Lanemann said. “We did a better job finishing our chances. We’ve had a game already where we had over 20 shots and got only two goals out of it. It was nice to score more than four goals.”

Nurnberger and Noelker both scored twice for Washington. Pagan had a goal and three assists. Savannah Thibault, Elliott and Pottebaum each had one goal.

“Brianna and Arika both played really well,” Lanemann said. “Halee and Martha both played well up top. Salena really started playing well.”

Leading Washington’s defense was Taylor Andrews, Sierra Thibault, Amanda Aiello, Elanna Osthoff and Destiny Hofstetter.

“We were in their end for the entire game. We played everybody. We were getting people in for 10 or 15 minutes and out for 10 or 15 minutes,” Lanemann said. “A win like this shows the depth we have on our bench when we’re putting kids out there who haven’t played as much in the first four or five games and we’re still scoring goals.”

Washington also won the junior varsity game over Warrenton, 4-0.

Washington varsity plays next week at the Windsor Tournament, opening against De Soto Monday at 8 p.m. The Lady Jays also will play Wednesday. The final day of the tournament is Thursday.

“If we can get past De Soto and meet the winner of the Seckman-Farmington game, that should be good competition for us,” Lanemann said. “Defensively, we’re playing very well. We’re giving up very few shots. Offensively, maybe we’re not scoring as much as I would like, but we’re still possessing the ball and holding on to the ball. We’re carrying 75 to 80 percent of the possession in most of the games we’ve played so far this year. The finishing will come. Hopefully this game will start our way toward that.”
