Washington made quick work of De Soto Monday night in the opening round of the Windsor Girls Soccer Tournament.
The Lady Jays (6-0-1) needed just 44 minutes to score 10 goals and end the contest due to the mercy rule, a 10-0 victory.
“Overall, it was a very good game for us. We played very well,” said Washington Head Coach Chris Lanemann. “We finished our chances better in this game than we have in any other game so far this season.”
Washington, which has scored 18 goals in its last two games, advances to the tournament semifinals Wednesday at 8 p.m. against Tuesday’s winner between Farmington and Seckman.
Union and Windsor meet in the other semifinal game Wednesday at 6 p.m.
The tournament concludes Thursday with the consolation game at 4 p.m. followed by the third-place contest at 6 p.m. and the championship game at 8 p.m.
Halee Nurnberger scored four goals and added one assist for Washington in the win over De Soto.
Nurnberger now has scored 12 goals on the season, which leads the entire St. Louis area heading into Tuesday’s action.
Salena Pottebaum netted three goals for the Lady Jays.
“Halee played very well, as did Salena,” Lanemann said. “This is the kind of production I was expecting out of our forwards.”
Brianna Pagan finished the match with one goal and two assists.
Jenna Barnhart added one goal and one assist.
Arika Elliott also scored a goal.
Liz Brinkmann registered two assists.
