Hatchets win sixth game in a row



Forest Park grabbed moment, but it didn't last long. Sophomore Shylah Sama scored when she moved past Forest Park senior Madi Boeglin to the right of the goal and Boeglin went down with an apparent knee injury. Sama got three shots on goal. The first two were blocked, but she found the back of the net on the third attempt to give Washington a 3-2 lead in the 46th minute.

The Hatchets protected the one-goal lead for 21 minutes when they got an insurance goal from senior Lupe Perez with an assist from Olivia Sherman. 18 seconds after Perez's goal, Sherman scored a goal of her own on a penalty kick to push the lead to 5-2.

"That's always a test, it's easier to be in good mind and good spirits when things go your way, but here we were against Forest Park with the game tied and they have the momentum," Bryant said. "It was a test and I thought we came out and the girls in a positive way chewed on each other enough that we didn't quit. I was proud of how we responded today."

Forest Park cut the lead to 5-3 with just over seven minutes to play in regulation when Rachel Lueken put a penalty kick past Washington senior goalie Ally Hunsinger. With 2:33 to play in the contest, Hunsinger left with what Bryant called a twisted knee and Hunsinger was replaced by Richardson for the rest of the game. Hunsinger is expected back when the Hatchets play at Jasper tonight.

With the victory, Washington has won six in a row and have a record of 7-1-1 since starting the season 0-2. Bryant likes where his team is at this point in the season, but he still sees room for improvement over the last five games of the regular season.
