GOSHEN – Ending a four-game losing streak, the Wilmington High School girls soccer team blanked Goshen 3-0 Tuesday in a Southern Buckeye Athletic & Academic Conference match at Jim Brown Stadium.

The win puts Wilmington at 3-4-1 overall and 2-2 in the American Division. Goshen falls to 2-5 overall and 0-4 in the league.

“We dominated play for 80 minutes,” WHS coach Kerry Lewis said. “We missed several scoring opportunities in the first half due to the turf speed and the ball rolling off the table. We talked to the girls during pregame about the age and subsequent speed of the playing surface, but it took them one half to adjust. Passing and combination play was really good today. It’s nice to get a win and see the girls rewarded for their hard work and excellent play.”

Wilmington took a 1-0 lead when senior Ashlyn Carey scored in the sixth minute with Katlyn Jamiel getting an assist.

Junior Jordan Snarr “hit a rocket from left top of the box to inside the far post,” Lewis said. Katlyn Jamiel notched her second assist.

“Katlyn continues to play at a very high level,” Lewis said. “She defends, distributes and scores the ball. Katlyn works hard to make the players around her better.”

The final goal in the second half was by sophomore Autumn Housh off a corner kick assist from Jasmine Jamiel.
