It was worth the wait.
Washington finally was able to play the third-place game of the Pacific Girls Soccer Tournament last Friday, registering a 5-0 victory over Windsor (12-4).
The Lady Jays (11-13-1) lost Monday at Parkway South, 1-0.
In the Windsor contest, Washington netted two goals in the first half and three more in the second half.
“We played pretty well, except for the first 10 minutes of each half,” said Washington Head Coach Chris Lanemann. “Our defense did not give up a single shot the entire game. Our offense created numerous scoring chances.”
Martha Noelker scored two goals for the Lady Jays.
Elizabeth Brinkmann, Andrea Bourne and Taylor Andrews each added one goal and one assist.
Brianna Pagan collected two assists.
Mary McGilvray registered the shutout in goal.
Parkway South (9-8) scored in the second half Monday to defeat Washington, 1-0.
“The girls played very hard and played well. We had two mental lapses at the end of the game that cost us,” Lanemann said. “Our defense again played amazing. We didn’t create enough quality chances on goal and that was the difference in the game.”
Alaina Derse scored on an assist from Caitlin Crawford. Kat Yahnke posted the shutout in goal.
Washington ended its regular season Tuesday with a win over Duchesne.
The Lady Jays are seeded second for the Class 3 District 9 Tournament at Rock Bridge High School in Columbia. They play third-seeded Jefferson City in the semifinals Tuesday, May 15, at 7 p.m. The championship game is May 17 at 6 p.m.
