14 minutes later, junior Shawna Webb fired a shot from the left of the goal that hit off the cross bar in the right corner and came down inside the goal to give Washington a 2-0 lead with 7:51 to play in regulation. There was some confusion at the time of the goal as to whether or not the ball came down in the goal, and junior Elaynna Brashear was right there to tap it in at the right corner.
"Shawna (Webb) had an exceptional game," Bryant said. "This is probably her best game of the season — good energy, some good touches, she battled for a ball on the header and she battled for that ball and got a foot on it and they called it a goal. One thing I liked hearing afterwords was Elayanna Brashear said she wasn't sure they counted it so she kicked it again, which I said is what you have to do until you hear somebody blow the whistle."
The Hatchets have just two home games left before their matchup with Castle — the host school of their sectional — Oct. 10. Princeton visits the Sports Complex Monday night and Bloomington South will be the Hatchets opponent Tuesday night for Senior Night.
"We have to still try to play smarter offensively," Bryant said. "We have to try to correct the mistakes we still make defensively. We play strong defensively, but we always have three or four plays that usually goes 80 yards, or the whole series we just don't play well. We have to try to correct that. Everyone has bumps and bruises and we have a game Monday, so once again we have just one day and a game on Tuesday. We just don't have very much rest at the end of this season. Try to play smarter offensively and correct the mistakes that we have on defense and just try to survive this gauntlet."
