Demon soccer dominates Mediapolis
Washington girls advance in Class 1A Region 4 play with victory over Mepo
WASHINGTON — The Washington girls soccer team began its postseason run on the right note Wednesday night in a Class 1A Region 4 quarterfinal matchup with Mediapolis.
The Demons played as a cohesive unit, winning the quarterfinal bout 3-0.
Washington set the tone early and kept a pace that Mediapolis couldn’t keep up with.
All but five minutes into the game, the Demons struck as junior Audrey Anderson put the ball in the back of the net.
Washington continued to keep pressure on Mediapolis’ back line and eventually it broke.
The goal came from Audrey Anderson once again, but this time from the penalty spot after sophomore Alyvia Anderson drew a foul just inside the box.
That would double the Demons lead heading into halftime, 2-0.
Through the first half, Washington dominated, firing off over 25 shots at goal, while holding much of the possession.
In the second, it was much of the same.
The Demons held possession and quickly thwarted any sort of Mediapolis attack.
In the scoring column, Washington wasn’t done yet.
Freshman Angeline Anderson capped off the Demons scoring with a chip shot right over the head of the Mediapolis keeper to seal the regional victory.
With the win, Washington improves to 11-5 overall. That’s the most wins in school history.
Washington will now face Davenport Assumption (11-4) in the Regional Semifinal on Tuesday.
