JACKSON — The Washington Blue Lion boys soccer team showed improvement in a Frontier Athletic Conference game at Jackson Tuesday evening, Sept. 11, but came up short to a much deeper Ironman squad, 5-1.

Despite the score, Washington coach Aaron Teter sees growth in his team’s defense.

“This was our best team defensive performance to date,” Teter said. “Other than a couple of breakdowns and the two late goals by Jackson, we played both organized and aggressively against a tough offense.”

Teter praised backs Jaxson Singleton and Preston Hines on their best games of the season.

Blue Lion saves were scattered between two goalkeepers, Garrett Dewees (5) Ryan Schwartz (3), and defenders Brice Coy (1) and Alan Schreckengaust (1).

Washington (0-6-2) will host McClain on Thursday at 5 p.m.

In other FAC matches Tuesday, Miami Trace defeated Hillsboro, 3-0 and Chillicothe continues defense of their 2017 title with a 10-1 over the Tigers of McClain.
