The area’s boys soccer season came to an end on Monday night, as both Washington and Mid-Prairie were unable to keep the good times rolling in the substate semifinals.
Both teams lost to schools who have been a thorn in their respective sides for the last few years. Washington’s 4-0 loss to Fort Madison was the eighth-straight defeat at the hands of the Bloodhounds. West Liberty made it 11-straight over Mid-Prairie with a 2-1 victory.
In Fort Madison, the Demons continued to struggle to score against the Southeast Conference champions. Washington forced Bloodhound keeper Reiburn Turnbull to save just four shots.
The Bloodhounds scored two goals in the first half and two goals in the second.
Mid-Prairie trailed 2-0 at halftime but put up quite the fight in the second period. The Golden Hawks cut the lead in half on a goal from Owen Trimpe, but they never found the equalizer.
Washington ended its soccer season with a 12-5 record. Mid-Prairie finished 11-4.
