On a miserable weather day, Washington had to face the area’s strongest 2011 girls soccer team.

Morton sloshed its way through soggy field conditions and intermittent showers during an otherwise blustery afternoon for a 7-0 Mid-Illini Conference win April 19.

The Potters had more than twice as many shots as the Lady Panthers against the goalkeeper combination of Olivia Schoch and Courtney Williams.

With the loss, Washington dropped to seventh place in the league with a 1-3 mark.

In a 10-0 overall start, Morton has outscored its opponents by a 48-2 margin.

WCHS 4, Limestone 0
The Lady Panthers rebounded April 21 with a shutout of the Rockets.

Although it was a non-conference result, the game is a preview of the May 5 (rescheduled from Tuesday) tilt in Washington, which will count toward the league standings.

The Lady Panthers scored twice in each half in Bartonville.

After a Limestone own goal, Erin O’Brien doubled Washington’s margin with a tally in the 32nd minute.

Dani Boley made it 3-0 on a penalty kick halfway through the second half.

The Lady Panthers set the final with a Marissa Pickford score with less than 10 minutes to go.

Williams registered the win defending the Washington net.

Richwoods 3, WCHS 0
The Knights pulled away Monday with a pair of second-half goals in Peoria.

Washington (5-5) generated six shots on goal, but none made it past the Richwoods keeper.

Schoch made 16 saves for the Lady Panthers.

Head coach William Hudson’s crew looked for a regular-season sweep of East Peoria Thursday in a non-conference clash.
