2013 soccer sectional tournament ready to kick off

The leaves have changed and the temperatures are cooling. It’s time for the Indiana soccer sectional tournament to begin. Washington and Washington Catholic will take to the field this week in search of a sectional championship.

After losing a wealth of talent, the Hatchets finished the regular season with a 12-4-1 record and a second place finish in the Big 8 conference. Washington will match up with Boonville tonight at 5 p.m. CDT, a team it beat 5-0 at the Sports Complex Sept. 18. Despite the final score, Washington only led 1-0 at half before scoring four goals in the second half.

Washington coach Quintin Myers said his team will have to come out with 40 minutes of intensity against the Pioneers, who the Hatchets beat 1-0 in the first round of the Boonville sectional last year. The Hatchets lost 1-0 to Castle in the semi-finals. Washington’s sectional location will move to Evansville North from Boonville in previous years.

“We know what we need to work on - it’s this late in the season we know the things we have to do to be successful,” Myers said. “We have got to start with high intensity Wednesday night against Boonville and not come out flat, because the longer they can hang on, the bigger chance they have to upset us. Hopefully we come out with the mindset that we take no prisoners and take it to them.”

Washington drew a bye in the first round, while avoiding Evansville North, Castle and Jasper in the first game. North defeated Jasper Monday night 4-3 and will face Castle in the second game Wednesday night. Jasper was the only team Washington failed to beat in the regular season.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better sectional draw than we have,” Myers said. “We can’t overlook Boonville Wednesday before we can even think about the championship Saturday.”
