Washington secured a winning record in the GAC North with a 4-0 home soccer win Tuesday over Duchesne.
The Lady Jays (12-13-1, 5-3) finished in third place in the conference behind Ft. Zumwalt East and Ft. Zumwalt South.
Washington scored two goals in both halves against Duchesne.
“The girls played a great game against Duchesne. It was definitely the best we have played all year,” said Washington Head Coach Chris Lanemann. “Every girl who got playing time played extremely well and did exactly what I expect of them every game.”
Liz Brinkmann netted two goals for Washington.
Halee Nurnberger added one goal and one assist.
Martha Noelker also scored.
Nurnberger and Noelker both have 12 goals on the season. Nurnberger also has 18 assists.
Arika Elliott finished with two assists. Destiny Hofstetter had one assist.
“We put a lot of offensive pressure on them. We did a really nice job in the attacking third, which had been a trouble spot for us this year,” Lanemann said. “Our midfield had a very good game led by Anneliese Baer, Liz Brinkmann, Brianna Pagan, Arika Elliott, Jenna Barnhart and Destiny Hofstetter. Our three forwards played great with Salena Pottebaum, Halee Nurnberger and Martha Noelker.
Andrea Bourne registered the shutout in goal with seven saves.
“Andrea played extremely well. She had to make three incredible saves to keep the shutout,” Lanemann said. “Our defense played great, led by Hannah Overschmidt, Brittany Monroig and Taylor Andrews.”
Washington is seeded second for the Class 3 District 9 Tournament at Rock Bridge High School in Columbia.
The Lady Jays play third-seeded Jefferson City in the semifinals Tuesday at 7 p.m.
The championship game is Thursday at 6 p.m.
Lanemann said he doesn’t know much about Jefferson City or Rock Bridge.
“I know very little about either of those two teams,” Lanemann said. “I know that all of the teams in the district played very close games with each other.”
