Jasper takes Big 8 title with win over Washington

(Continued)

Eight minutes later, Christopher Menjivar put a shot past Brown at the front right corner of the goal to put the Wildcats up 2-0 with 22 minutes to play in regulation.

“It was another missed clearance out of the back,” Myers said. “It happened at Canterbury, and one mistake can hurt us. Tonight we had two and it was eight minutes of the game and they punished us on those two.”

Both teams came out firing in the first half. Despite zero goals being scored in the first 40 minutes there were plenty of chances on both sides. Jasper’s best opportunity came on a point blank shot from junior midfielder Gustav Brodin midway through the first half, but Brown turned the shot away moments before an offsides penalty was called against the Wildcats. On the Hatchets side, sophomore Nicholas White had an opportunity six yards out, but the Jasper defense deflected the ball to junior Francisco Rodriguez, but he couldn’t get a shot off.

Washington has one game left Thursday against Evansville Harrison on Senior Night. The Hatchets need to end the regular season on a strong note after losing their last three games.

“Tomorrow we’re going to watch film and look at some things that we can improve on and check on the mistakes we had in the back and how we can improve those,” Myers said. “We’ll give them Saturday off so we can heal up, we have a lot of bangs and bruises from the weekend and start Monday fresh. Attitudes are still high, of course they’re upset, this is a big loss for us, but I’m confident we can learn from these games. You don’t get better without playing the best.”
