“Obviously if they’re not getting in there, there’s no way we can score. We talked at half that we’re doing exactly what we need to be doing, but the crosses were poor. Our service on corners and free kicks was lacking tonight and we have to improve — that’s the keys to victory for us.”
With 13 minutes remaining in the second half, Washington senior Luke Raymond had a head on collision with Boonville’s Luke Parker, which resulted in both players going down. Parker spent less than a minute on the ground, but Raymond remained down for several minutes before being helped off the field. Myers said Raymond sustained a concussion on the play.
The contest was undecided until the own goal in overtime, but for much of the night Boonville had no offensive chances and Myers said that was thanks to Washington’s players in the back doing an excellent job. The Hatchets will face the winner of the other semi-final between Evansville North and Castle.
“People could say we overlooked Boonville — we played our game, we just couldn’t get anything to the back of the net,” Myers said. “Mainly we need to work on some finishing drills. We just have to play our game, things just didn’t go in tonight.”
