Hatchets top Pioneers, 2-1

BOONVILLE — The Washington girls soccer team continued its hot play Wednesday night at Boonville with a 2-1 victory. The Hatchets (6-3-1) earned the one-goal victory, but they completely dominated possession for much of the 80 minutes of play.

Washington outshot Boonville 40-3, and the lone blemish on the defense was a Boonville goal on a corner kick four minutes into play which found the back of the goal without a Boonville player touching it. It wound up being the only shot of the first half and the only corner kick attempt of the game for the Pioneers.

Sophomore Emily Mahan scored the Hatchets first goal of the game in the 17th minute off a cross from the left from sophomore Shylah Sama to tie the score at one. Washington took a 2-1 lead into halftime when freshman Kaitlyn Davis scored on a cross from the right from Sama to give the Hatchets momentum at the half.

The Hatchets were able to score two goals in the first half, but coach Stacy Bryant said the defense was excellent for 80 minutes allowing Washington to walk away with another victory. Since losing the first two games of the seaosn, the Hatchets are 6-1-1.

“Mikayla Richardson was outstanding tonight with her defense in the midfield but it was her decision making with ball that really made the difference, Bryant said. “The two wing backs of Katie Hedrick and Ashlyn Stoll both recorded shots on goal and played hardnosed defense all night long, but the defender of the game was Audra Stallman. She played smart and aggressive and really made an impact on the game and that is exactly how we need seniors to step up.”

Bryant did come out a little concerned about the lack of explosion from his offense, which came away with just two goals despite a 19-0 advantage in shots on goal.
