ANDREW SPELLMAN ANDREW SPELLMAN Senior Kyle Lowe takes to the air to pass to his teammate down field. 7 edgesville ended the Cougars run to the state tournament in . the Regional finals, defeating them 1-0 after an Eagles goal in the fi, nal 10 minutes. The last time the Cougars saw the state tournament was 2016 when cur- rent seniors were just sophomores. Hedgesville stood in the Cougars way at the Region 2 finals, but failed to find the mark as the Cougars shut them out 3-0. Jefferson wouldn't have the same luck in the next round, getting over- powered by George Washington 5-1 in the State Semifinals. The Cougars missed the chance to see the semifinals again the following year after losing 2-1 to the Patriots in the Section 2 Championship. Washing- ton entered the Region 2 Finals to face the Eagles, who handed them a heftY 5-2 loss. Unfortunately, the Eagles would face the same fate as the Cou- gars the year prior, losing to Wheeling Park in the semifinals by one goal. This year, the Cougars were de- termined to see the State Semifinals again, surely vying to snap the curse placed upon the first round of the State Tournament. After repeating their 2016 shutout against Washington, they trav- eled to neutral ground to face the No. 2 Eagles. It was a physical fight on both sides of the ball, and neither defense would crack in the first three quarters. Finally, with 7:14 remaining in the second half, Hedgesville sinks a shot from the top of the box and taking the lead. They wouldn't allow Jefferson to score the remainder of the game, claiming Re- gion 2. "The way we went out last year, we were looking for redemption. We got it against Washington, but it didn't help here. This is the first time while I've coached here that we've lost the region after winning the section," Head Coach Chris Steffey said. "They've got a good team - we knew that they were going to make it tough on us and they did. It's always tough when we play these guys." Hedgesville is set to face the goli- ath Hurricane Redskins on Nov. 2. The Redskins have a 22-3 season record, are ranked third in Class-AAA, and have only allowed 17 goals throughout the season. Hurricane also boasts an m- credible 110 goals, whereas the Eagles have only sunk 52. Patriots face the same fate With the state tournament with- in their grasp for the third time since 2016, the Patriots never gave into the Eagles attack until the final buzzer. The physical game would end with Hedges- ville on top, defeating Washington 2-0. Hedgesville has been a hurdle for the Patriots to reach states for three years. The Pats defeated the Eagles 5-0 in 2016 before losing 5-1 to George Washington in the State Semifinals, and then lost to them 2-1 in overtime last year. It was the year of redemption for se- niors Kat Romero, Adie Amore, Ava Roth, Bailey Miller, Holly Goben, Hunter Cogle, and Maria Seaman, but that goal began to dwindle in the sec- ond half before finally being extin- guished with Hedgesville's second goal with 10:45 left on the clock. The Eagles would get an early goal from a free-kick at the 20 minute mark, but the Patriots kept fighting through the physical Hedgesville backline to try and find the net. Junior Alexis Hudson kept finding open field and passes from her teammates, but the Eagles defense would allow her no room passed the 18-yard mark. Hudson took a beating throughout the match, visibly shaken up the more she collidedwith the turf. (See REGIONALS Page C8) FRANKIE AMORE WASHINGTON HIGH Amore broke the century mark for the fifth time this season, throwing for 139 yards and one touchdown. Amore also rushed I-yard for. the Patriots second and last touch- down of the game. NATHAN STARKEY JEFFERSON HIGH Starkey placed 44th at the AAA State Meet with a time of 17:57. Sta&ey was the only runner from Jefferson's boys team to attend the tournament. ALEXIS HUDSON WASHINGTON HIGH Hudson left everything on the field at Re- gionals, placing multiple shots-on-goal while defending the sideline with intensity. 'ADDLE LAL 0 IB i,; 3EFFE SO i Labombard traveled to the State Meet on Saturday, placing 37th overall with a time of 21:41. Labombard shined bright throughout her season, and accomplished a feat not many freshman can claim.
