Scoring twice in each half, the Washington soccer Lady Jays won their first-round game in the 25th Annual Joseph Carenza Memorial CYC Tournament in Fenton over Columbia, Ill., 4-1.

“It was a very good win,” Washington Head Coach Chris Lanemann said. “The girls played pretty well, and we controlled the majority of the game. We got back to controlling the ball through the midfield, which is a very big part of our game. We used our speed on the wings to generate numerous scoring chances.”

For the win, the Lady Jays (13-4, 4-2) get top-seeded Rockwood Summit Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the second round.

“We will have a very tough challenge today versus Summit,” Lanemann said. “I know the girls are up for it. This is why you play in tournaments like this so you can play very good teams.”

The winner of Tuesday’s game advances to the semifinals Wednesday at 6 p.m. The loser plays Wednesday at 4:15 p.m.

No matter what happens, the Lady Jays will get a fourth game in the tournament, playing Thursday. Watch the area scoreboard section on emissourian.com for updates.

In Monday’s game, Halee Nurnberger netted two goals, including the game winner

Brianna Pagan had one goal and two assists.

Salena Pottebaum scored the other Washington goal.

Cassidy Nurnberger added an assist.

Mary McGilvray made five saves in goal to earn the win.

Ft. Zumwalt North

The Lady Jays went into the CYC Tournament with two losses in three matches after losing a GAC Central contest at Ft. Zumwalt North Friday, 3-1.

Washington’s goal came from Pagan.

McGilvray was in goal for the full game.

“I think we may have lost our focus and it showed in our play,” Lanemann said. “We were sloppy in both ends of the field. We made some mental mistakes in the defensive end which ended up in the back of our net. Then on the attacking end we didn’t put in the effort when we had chances to score. We missed some real good opportunities to score and just like our defensive mistakes it hurt us in the end.”

Lanemann said Washington has suffered some injuries in recent games and that’s hurting. However, he feels the team needs to find a way to persevere.

“I know the injuries we have right now are playing a factor in our play, but we still have the players to get the job done,” Lanemann said. “We just need to find a way to play at a high level consistently. We are going to need some players to step up and play well while a couple starters heal up.”
