With tournament time nearing, area teams want to be playing their best going into the postseason.
Rosecrans is on that level after beating visiting Coshocton 2-0 in East Central Ohio League girls soccer play Tuesday.
“This is a really quality win for us,” Bishops coach Tom Hutcheson said. “Coshocton is a good team and we hope with this win that we can be considered for a No. 1 seed at the tournament draw.”
Molly Nash and Megan Erwine scored a goal each for Rosecrans (13-2), and Anna Boggs also had nine saves in the victory.
Hannah Michael had 15 saves for the Lady Redskins (7-3-2).
After trading chances early in the first half, the Bishops made good on a corner kick with about 28 minutes left.
Darby Lynch sent a shot into the box to Nash, sending her first header to the goalkeeper. However, the goalie couldn’t control it and Nash headed in a second chance to make it 1-0.
Rosecrans struck again at about the same time in the second half when Erwine knocked in a deflected ball off a Coshocton player’s head.
Lady ‘Skins coach Matt Hartley felt like they missed some chances.
“I don’t think we played bad, I just think we missed some opportunities in front of the net,” he said. “We are getting better, but we have some work to do before tournament time.”
The Division III tournament draw is Sunday and Hartley is hoping his team still can earn a high seed.
“With the teams in our sectional, we have to get a top four seed to get out,” he said. “We want to face a team we haven’t seen before.”
