Washington split its final two girls soccer games of the regular season.
The Lady Jays (12-11-1) notched a 3-1 victory Tuesday over St. Charles at Lakeview Park and dropped a 2-0 decision Thursday at Troy.
Washington handed St. Charles just its second loss of the season.
St. Charles (16-2) had allowed just two goals all season heading into the game.
The Lady Jays scored two goals in the first 20 minutes of the contest.
“It was a good win for us. We got back to doing the things that make us successful. We are very appreciative of the parks department letting us use Lakeview,” said Washington Head Coach Chris Lanemann. “We carried the position by a wide margin. We didn’t overhandle the ball. We moved it quickly and found open space.”
Halee Nurnberger had a hand in all three of Washington’s goals, finishing with two goals and one assist.
Martha Noelker also scored. Amanda Aiello and Jenna Barnhart both had one assist.
“Our forwards put a lot of pressure on the St. Charles defense,” Lanemann said. “Amanda had a great assist on Halee’s second goal. Amanda played a perfect free kick in from about 35 yards out and Halee redirected the ball with a head ball into the open goal. It was one of the prettiest goals all year.”
Mary McGilvray played all 80 minutes in goal, registering five saves.
“Defensively, we played well, giving up few chances. Taylor Andrews had a very good game, especially considering she is coming back from an injury that caused her to miss quite a few games,” Lanemann said. “The rest of the defense played really well. Our entire midfield played very well controlling the play. Destiny Hofstetter had a very nice game in the central midfield.”
Traveling to the location of next week’s district tournament, Washington allowed one goal in each half in the loss at Troy.
Kylie Thwing and Mariah Vollmer scored for Troy. Thwing and Lexy Roberts recorded assists.
Tiffany Hazelwonder made five saves while recording the shutout.
