The best regular season in the history of Washington soccer continued Saturday.
The team (17-7) stretched its win streak to seven games Saturday with a 5-1 nonconference win on the road at Troy (3-11-1).
The win set a new mark for the longest winning streak for the team since 1999. The team is also in uncharted territory this year as far as wins in a single season.
“Within the team we were calling this ‘History Week’ as we sought to break the school win record of 14 and did that against Ft. Zumwalt South away on Tuesday,” Head Coach Derek Schriewer said. “Our team had never won at FZS or Ft. Zumwalt East and we overcame some long-standing history in the GAC to pull off both of those wins. During the week individual records were also achieved as Conlan Jarvis moved to No. 2 in season goals behind Joe Morgan’s 30 in 2002, Christian (Longseth) tied his own record from last year with eight shutouts when we beat Sullivan, & Jeremiah (Collins) as well as Conlan entered the Troy game tied for the single-season assist record of 13 held by Tim Isgrig since 2001.”
Jarvis and Collins each recorded two assists in the game, both surpassing Isgrig’s mark and finishing the game tied with 15 assists apiece on the season.
In terms of goals, Jarvis had two of those in the game as well. Zach Subke scored two goals and Collins netted one.
Goalkeeper Ottmar Escalante narrowly missed out on a shutout in the contest, finally surrendering a goal in the last 10 minutes. Escalante went 10-11 in save chances to earn the win.
