WILMINGTON – The Wilmington High School girls soccer team celebrated Senior Night with a strong 4-0 win over Goshen in SBAAC American Division play Tuesday night at Alumni Field.

“Total domination,” WHS coach Kerry Lewis said. “Emptied the bench. Everyone played a lot of minutes. Great team win.”

WHS seniors are Katlyn Jamiel, Ashlyn Carey, Miranda Thrasher, Maddie Siders, Suzannah Johns, Faith Sanderson, Pepper Cantwell and Anna Keiter.

“We will dearly miss all our seniors,” Lewis said.

Wilmington trails New Richmond and Batavia by a half game in the American Division standings. WHS plays Batavia on Thursday while New Richmond faces Goshen. A WHS win and NR loss would give the Lady ‘Cane the division title. With a WHS win and NR tie, the two teams would tie for the league top spot, Lewis said.

Karlie Morgan notched her fourth straight shutout to establish a WHS season record. The shutout was the sixth of the year, good enough for second all-time behind Megan Borton’s nine shutouts in 2014. Borton had three consecutive shutouts. Ashley Greene had five shutouts in 2009, Lewis said.

The Lady Hurricane led 3-0 at halftime. Jasmine Jamiel scored the first goal in the 17th minute. Katlyn Jamiel and Michelle Huffman played give-and-go to put Jasmine in scoring position. She “showed excellent composure and finished on a charging keeper,” said Lewis.

Katlyn Jamiel made it 2-0 in the 19th minute off a free kick then Anna Borton made it 3-0 in the 21st minute with Autumn Housh getting credit with an assist.

The lone second half goal was scored by Ashlyn Carey, with assists to Housh and Katlyn Jamiel.
