Myles Newhouse scored the match’s only goal when Washington defeated visiting Elkins, 1-0, in boy’s soccer on Saturday at Marcus Stadium.
The victory moved Washington’s overall record to 2-2-1 and left the Tigers with a 5-3-1 overall mark.
The match was scoreless at halftime before Newhouse scored early in the second half.
Washington goalkeeper Ted Kowalski helped keep the Tigers at bay and off the scoreboard with a number of saves in both halves.
It wasn’t as if the game was without scoring opportunities for both teams because shot-attempts cropped up throughout the 80 minutes of play.
Elkins’ goalkeeper also made a number of significant stops. But in the second half, the Patriots swarmed Tyler Gray with shots and Newhouse sent his try past the fast-moving Elkins’ goalkeeper.
The Washington defense didn’t allow any goals. Kowalski and company kept Elkins from scoring. And the 1-0 win evened the Patriots’ record after five matches.
