The odds were stacked against Washington in its season opening soccer match against Bishop DuBourg last Friday at the Northwest/Parkway West Tournament.

The Blue Jays played a man down for the final 35 minutes of the game after receiving a red card, but still held on for a 2-1 victory at Northwest High School.

Washington led 2-1 at halftime and held DuBourg scoreless in the second half, despite playing minus one player.

“I’m really proud of our guys. There were a lot of obstacles we had to clear to win the game,” said Washington Head Coach Derek Schriewer. “One of our players, Sam Lenger, was taken out a couple of times to start the second half and that’s about the time where we got our red card. The odds definitely weren’t in our favor by playing a man down.

“We’re dealing with some injuries and had only four available subs. With the heat, it made it pretty rough, but the water breaks helped. We had six or seven guys who played the entire game.”

Washington (1-0) continues action in the round-robin tournament with games Wednesday against Seckman and Thursday against Northwest. Both games will be played at Northwest High School starting at 7 p.m.

Northwest defeated Seckman in Friday’s other game, 2-1.

Justin Schuttenberg scored both of the Blue Jays’ goals against DuBourg to give his team a 2-0 advantage.

Assists were given to Parker Smith and Cameron Bunkley. Lenger also helped set up the first goal.

“Justin should be one of our top goal scorers this season,” Schriewer said. “He scored around 10 goals last year and hopefully he’ll get to at least 15 goals this season. He’s off to a good start.”

DuBourg’s Kyle Davis scored late in the first half to make the score 2-1.

David Meyers played all 80 minutes in goal, collecting six saves.

“David had four of his six saves in the second half,” Schriewer said. “He made a save with about five minutes left in the game on a nice shot that we tipped wide.”

Playing a man down, the Blue Jays focused on defense for the final 35 minutes of the game, trying to maintain their one-goal lead.

“Our halftime talk was thrown out the window five minutes into the second half after getting the red card. We had to come up with a new strategy, so we did things on the fly,” Schriewer said. “We had to focus on defense and protect the goal. It worked out for us.”

Schriewer gave credit to his defense for holding the lead.

“Austin Beers, Drake Gleeson and Landon Jarvis led the way for us defensively. Our defense was solid. We didn’t give them many scoring chances,” Schriewer said. “It was a great win. We pulled together as a team and found a way to win the game. It was an interesting way to start the season. The guys showed a lot of heart to pull out the win.”
