The Wawasee girls soccer team closed out its JV schedule Saturday in the Northern Lakes Conference invite at Warsaw.
A first-half goal by Warsaw was all she wrote, giving the Tigers a 1-0 victory over Wawasee in the first game. Game two had Wawasee’s offensive struggles come back to haunt them in a 3-0 loss to Concord. After playing to a nil-nil draw in the first half, Concord opened the second half with a goal and tacked on two more to close out the win.
Wawasee shuts the book on its JV calendar with a 5-8 record.
“After a poor 15 minutes, we played,” started Wawasee coach Doug Heinisch. “This was a much more competitive game than when we played them early in the season. We had some mice periods where we passed well and controlled the ball.”
Wawasee’s varsity will take on Warsaw Thursday at the Plymouth Soccer Sectional.
Tigers Trample Warriors
Wawasee had little to show Saturday morning in hosting Warsaw, falling 26-0.
Stephon Miller had an interception and Michael Semon caught a 35-yard pass, otherwise it was all Tigers.
“We had opportunities to make plays but we didn’t when we needed them,” said Wawasee JV coach Brent Berkeypile. “We have to find a way to get better and make that big play when given the opportunity. We will keep taking steps forward and get better.”
Wawasee (1-6) will travel to Elkhart Memorial next Saturday.
