Welcome to Washington High School

Blue Jay News


Washington High School soccer player Jared Lopez is the Washington Missourian Athlete of the Week, sponsored by First State Community Bank.

Lopez, a senior midfielder, played a key role in Washington’s memorable season that ended with a record of 25-9 and a second-place finish in Class 3.

“Jared is a very fun person to have in the program. His laugh is infectious. His effort is second to none and that’s obvious to anyone who caught any game this year,” said Washington Head Soccer Coach Derek Schriewer. “In one of the most difficult positions on the field, Jared always found a way to be involved in every game - even most plays of every game.”

The following is what Schriewer said about Lopez at the team’s postseason banquet”

“The effort and commitment exhibited by this young man every game for 80 minutes was simply remarkable. For a player to play 70 plus minutes in the center midfield position in our system is a formidable task that rewards with at least five miles of running. He did that almost every game this year and won the respect of teammates from every corner of the field.”

Washington’s boys soccer season ended with a second-place finish at the MSHSAA Class 3 Championships.

And did the Blue Jays ever produce some incredible moments.

Washington (25-9) dropped a 1-0 decision to Parkway Central (21-8-1) in the Class 3 state championship game Saturday, Nov. 11, at World Wide Technology Soccer Park in Fenton.

“All and all, riding on the Mid-America bus, playing at this facility, getting to see the St. Louis FC locker room, the entire experience was very precious,” said Washington Head Soccer Coach Derek Schriewer. “We feel honored that we had the chance to be here. Not too many people get to experience what we experienced here. It’s been a great season, and we’re looking forward to another one.”

The only goal of the championship game came in the 54th minute when Parkway Central scored on a corner kick.  Adam Burnett booted in front of the net to Matthew Deay, who headed it in for a goal.

“In a lot of ways, we played our game plan. We just lost a mark in the corner kick situation that led to their one goal,” Schriewer said. “We found a little more rhythm in the second half. We figured out what our passing sequences should be based on their formation. We played pretty solid.”

The Blue Jays had scoring chances in the match, especially down the stretch, but couldn’t punch in the equalizer.

“Our guys made things very difficult for them toward the end of the game with our pressure. We fought until the end and created chances in the closing minutes,” Schriewer said. “We played a great defensive game, but just weren’t able to find the back of the net.”

Christian Longseth was in goal for the Blue Jays against Parkway Central, registering eight saves.

Conlan Jarvis fired four shots in the game. Gabe Lopez and Jake Fregalette both added two shots. Jared Lopez, Noah Bay and Jeremiah Collins each had one shot.

“Our seniors have been amazing. To watch them develop and the way they’ve handled themselves, they’re a special group. I’m sad to see them go,” Schriewer said.

“We had hundreds of students and hundreds of fans here supporting us in both games. We filled up two sections on the back side and we still had the student section behind us,” Schriewer added. “The school and the town really pulled together and rallied around this team. Kudos to our kids. They made things so special that we had so many people cheering for us.”

Semifinal Game Against Harrisonville

Washington’s semifinal game against Harrisonville on Friday, Nov. 10, was one for the ages.

Trailing 2-0 and playing a man down for 81 minutes due to a red card issued, the Blue Jays rallied for a thrilling 4-3 victory in double overtime.

Washington tied the game 2-2 on goals by Conlan Jarvis and Jeremiah Collins, but the Wildcats reclaimed the lead 3-2 in the 64th minute.

Putting on severe offensive pressure, the Blue Jays tied the game 3-3 on a goal by Collins with seven seconds remaining on the clock.

“I saw the kid on my back. I knew he thought I was going to cut right because I’d been going right down that line trying to cross it for the whole game. So I just cut left,” Collins said. “I was a little selfish and took the shot. I knew I could put it in. The state semifinals, to get to the finals, that’s probably the biggest goal I’ve ever scored. We kept fighting the entire time. We didn’t stop. It was incredible.”

“It’s absolutely insane. We literally fought to the final seconds,” Schriewer said. “You never know what scenarios you’re going to be in. That’s what we talked about all week leading up to the game. I tried to share my experiences of being at the Final Four in the past, and I think that helped them mentally.”

With all of the momentum, Washington won the game in the second sudden-death overtime session on a goal by Jarvis, assisted by Jake Fregalette, in the 100th minute.

“Jake Fregalette beat a couple of guys on the wing and then he slid it across,” Jarvis said. “The ball was bouncing around, the goalie came out and I tried to do anything I could to get my foot on it and ended up putting it in. It was an amazing feeling.”

The game-winning goal by Jarvis tied Joe Morgan’s school record for most goals in a single season with 30.

“What a way to tie the record, scoring the winning goal to get to the state championship game,” Schriewer said. “Conlan is an amazing player. He’s so crafty. He’s smooth on the ball and is a real asset to us.”

Ottmar Escalante was in goal for Washington in the semifinal game, registering five saves.

Collins and Jarvis both had nine shots in the game.

“Jeremiah is a dynamic player,” Schriewer said. “He plays center back for his club team. He really wants to win, so he wants to be on that back line all the time. But we knew we needed to do something, so we moved him up. Clearly, he created more than enough chances to make a difference.”

Washington controlled possession against Harrisonville, even with a player short.

“It’s just the fight we have in us. We knew it was going to be tough, but we did everything we could to fight back and we ended up getting the win,” Jarvis said.

“We knew if we kept fighting and played our game, things would work out for us in the end,” Collins said. “They were getting tired. You could tell that after we came back from that two-goal deficit. We knew we had them.”

“Even after one half, we saw some of their guys getting fatigued. We felt like that could be a factor in the second half and if we got it to overtime,” Schriewer said. “We’re down 3-2 and a lot of teams would’ve given up at that point. Half of our guys were hobbling around, but they had no give-up in sight. We created a few chances in the last five minutes to potentially tie it, and didn’t put those away. But we finally got it with seven seconds to play.

“Our kids won’t ever forget this one. I’ll never forget the four-overtime game I was a part of. This double overtime and late-game equalizer, what a way to get a chance to play for a state championship. The kids deserve it.”
