The Navarre Raiders girls soccer team traveled to Washington last Tuesday and shut out the Wildcats by a 2-0 score and defeated the Aggies 2 -1 two days later at Tate.
Navarre 2, Washington 0
The Raiders started the game against Washington with several members of their high-powered offense sitting on the sidelines.
Coach Rob Simon used Anakah Madril and Brenda Bishop at midfield to stop the ball on defense and to start the offensive forays into the Wildcat territory. The Raiders demonstrated superior passing in the game, moving the ball from sideline to sideline. Sierra Fernandez, Autumn Slaybaugh, Kylie Lawson, Phoenix Aldrich and Rileigh Sutton converted the passes into shots on goal but did not have much luck putting points on the scoreboard.
At the 25th minute, Simon substituted his offensive machine of Jocelyn Fernandez, Jennifer Seward, Kileigh Whited, Rileigh Bastian and Jade Slaybaugh. Two minutes after the substitution, Madril passed to Seward in the left corner.
Seward gathered in the ball and used her speed to leave the defenders behind her as she headed toward the Wildcat goal. Seward shot from 20 yards out and the Wildcat goal keeper could not catch up to the ball, which rolled into the goal, giving the Raiders a 1-0 lead.
