Hatchets cruise past Mt. Carmel, 10-0

The Washington boys’ soccer started fast, and Mt. Carmel (Ill.) defense couldn’t keep up with the high-powered Hatchet offense.

The Hatchets (10-1-1) defeated Mt. Carmel 10-0 behind two goals apiece from Chance Wilson and Luke Raymond to pace a dominant offensive effort Monday evening at the Sports Complex.

Washington got on the scoreboard only 2:11 into play when Wilson put the Hatchets up 1-0. The junior forward scored again five minutes later to give him his second goal of the game and the Hatchets a 2-0 lead.

“Going into this game regardless of who we play we talk about we have to take the same intensity we would if we were taking on Castle, Evansville North or Bloomington team,” said Quintin Myers. “We started off with goals after two minutes, five minutes and 11 minutes — as a coaching staff they did exactly what we asked for.”

Senior midfielder Tony Serrano scored the third Washington goal of the night in the 11th minute, senior Andy Garland scored seven minutes later and sophomore defenseman Nick White’s goal in the 27th minute Washington a 5-0 lead. Washington extended its lead to 10-0 on goals from Josh Kirsch, Carson Smith, Austin Ghirardelli and two goals from Raymond in the second half.

“The main thing is we stayed on the gas the entired time,” Myers said. “What we talk about throughout the season is if we get two goals lets not just sit and be comfortable and we did that tonight.”

The Hatchet defense suffocated the Golden Aces offensive attack, which allowed the offense to control possession for nearly all 80 minutes of play

The win was the second straight for the Hatchets, who are 8-0-1 in their last nine games. Washington’s lone loss was to Bloomington South Aug. 24 during the Hatchet Classic. The Washington varsity will host Boonville Wednesday night in the final tune up before the Ft. Wayne Canterbury Invitational this weekend. Myers said everyone buying in to winning as a team has led to Washington’s high level of play in the last nine games.
