Not wins, not losses. Wawasee’s biggest number on its record is ties after the Warriors and Lakeland Lakers tied 1-1 Thursday in boys soccer played in Syracuse.
Lakeland found the net in the 55th minute, but Wawasee had the goal in hand as Alex Doll drew a penalty to which Luis Camargo converted the spot kick for Wawasee’s lone goal.
The penalty drawn was the third time in four games Wawasee has played in a match with a penalty kick.
The junior varsities battled to a nil-nil draw.
The varsity Warriors move to 4-4-5 on the season and have completed its non-conference slate. Wawasee will travel to Warsaw this Saturday in the first of three Northern Lakes Conference matches to wrap up its regular season.
Plymouth Overcomes Slow Start
Wawasee held Plymouth to just one goal in the first half of the varsity girls soccer match Thursday in Plymouth, but a second-half surge gave the Pilgrims a 4-0 win.
Plymouth found the net in the 18th minute, then needed just two minutes into the second half to double its lead. Two more goals in the next 20 minutes put the game out of reach.
Wawasee goalkeeper Nicole Streby played one of her better matches of the season, making 14 saves.
“Good effort tonight by Wawasee,” stated Lady Warrior head coach Doug Heinisch, noting his club had set out to achieve team goals. “It was a better effort than earlier this week versus Northridge. Nicole Streby, Caitlin Clevenger, Maddie Birch and Lauren Sausaman all deserve recognition for good play tonight.”
The Plymouth JV were able to build a 5-0 win against Wawasee.
Wawasee’s varsity (1-11, 0-4 NLC) will look to get back on the path Saturday in its trip to Warsaw.
