Hatchets win seventh straight, beat Jasper 1-0

JASPER — The Washington girls soccer team won its seventh straight game and stayed undefeated in the Big 8 conference by defeating Jasper Tuesday evening.

Washington (9-3-1, 4-0 Big 8) continued its hot play with a 1-0 win over Jasper. The Hatchets have put themselves in a great position to win the conference as the regular season comes to a close. The Hatchets have three games left — all at home. Evansville Harrison visits the Sports Complex Saturday morning, and the Big 8 conference schedule will conclude with Princeton Monday evening and Bloomington South Tuesday evening.

In the early part of the first half, Washington came out aggressive as Sophomore’s Jenna Johnson, Emily Mahan and Shylah Sama, but Washington came up empty.

In the 21st minute, senior Katie Hedrick took a corner kick from the left corner.

Hedrick’s kick curved towards the goal in mid air, and bounced off the goaltender’s hands and the ball spun into the back of the net to give Washington a 1-0 lead it would take into halftime.

Washington senior goaltender Ally Hunsinger was solid in goal once again with six saves and the defense as a whole bounced back from Saturday’s win when they allowed three goals in the 5-3 win over Forest Park.

Washington coach Stacy Bryant said the play of the night came in the second half when Jasper appeared to have the momentum. The corner kick wound up right in front of the goal and junior Abby Spaulding cleared the ball before Jasper could tie the game at one.

“Coach Bryant had me there on corner kicks and now I really know why,” Spaulding said.

The Hatchets hung on to hand Jasper the 1-0 defeat to to exact a measure of revenge against the Wildcats after dropping a 1-0 result at the Sports Complex last year to their Big 8 rivals. Washington outshot Jasper 17-14.

“Overall we played well,” Bryant said. “We shot better even though I would have liked to have seen more shots on goal. We had been working on technique to keep balls lower and it worked. Ally Hunsinger played like a leader tonight and so did Olivia Sherman.

“It was a physical game and the girls are pleased to avenge last years loss to them.”
