Hatchets bounce back with win over Warriors

WASHINGTON — The Washington girls soccer team needed a win after a disappointing loss Thursday night and they got just that — it just took a little while to get going.

Washington (10-4-1) defeated Evansville Harrison 2-0 Saturday afternoon at the Sports Complex.

Washington had its seven-game win streak snapped with a loss Thursday night at Evansville North 4-1, but Saturday afternoon they came out a little sluggish in the first half and the game was scoreless at halftime. Saturday's game was Washington fourth in the past seven games.

"We were tired," said Washington coach Stacy Bryant. "We put a lot of effort out in the Jasper game and Forest Park (Sept. 21) and we had to play Evansville North (Sept. 26) and then we only had one day before this game. Some of our key players have played a lot of minutes — everyone thinks young players don't get tired, but they do."

Washington got on the board with its first goal of the day in the 58th minute from senior Lupe Perez. Mikayla Richardson attempted a shot from the left of the goal, but her shot was deflected. Perez gained possession and fired a shot past Harrison goaltender Danielle Johnston to give the Hatchets a 1-0 lead.

"We have been working a lot with when you put a shot on goal to keep it down," Bryant said. "A weak ball going towards the goal is better than a strong ball going over the top of the goal. For the last two weeks we have focused a lot on that and Lupe (Perez) has scored two goals since then. She has told me that has she approached the ball on both of those shots she actually thought about it, and she's been one that has been sailing the ball over the goal. She said she's been running through those things in her head and it's nice as a coach to hear that and that's how she scored that goal."
