Hatchets, Cardinals ready for Hoosier Cup

With the boys soccer season in full swing, Washington will head to Bloomington on Saturday for the Hoosier Cup at Karst Farm Park, and the Hatchets will be joined by Washington Catholic for its first appearance in the hotly contested weekend tournament.

Washington (5-1)

The Hatchets enter the Hoosier Cup coming off their best win of the year, a 3-2 road victory against Evansville North Wednesday evening. After beating Mt. Vernon Tuesday night at the Sports Complex, Washington coach Quintin Myers wasn’t sure what kind of effort he would get against Evansville North, the defending Class A sectional champs at Boonville. What he got was an inspired effort from his team.

”We are definitely playing better than we had been,” Myers said. “We’re starting to play as a team, last night we had a huge win.”

The Hatchets got a break Thursday after two tough games, but they will be tested tonight and Saturday as they play three games total and the heat figures to be a factor in that endurance. Tonight at 6:30 p.m., Washington will play Bloomington North. The Hatchets will face South County (Ky) Saturday at 9 a.m. and they will finish up with Jennings County at 2:30 p.m. In addition to the endurance of the weekend play will be a question of whether or not the Hatchets can sustain the level of play they showed in Wednesday’s win.

“We’ve talked about their potential and they showed us that they can play at a high level and we hope we can sustain that,” Myers said.

Myers played in the Hoosier Cup as a player for Washington and he knows the expectations that come with Washington playing in this tournament.

“I expect to win the Hoosier Cup,” Myers said.

Washington Catholic (5-1)

Washington Catholic will be playing in the Hoosier Cup for the first time, and coach Wayne Neace is excited for the opportunity in front of this team. With only two regular season losses in his four years as the Cardinals coach, WC is sure to see new competition in all three games.
