Cass won some bragging rights Thursday by defeating Woodland, 2-0, in girls high school soccer play.

The Lady Colonels scored in both halves in the hard-fought contest.

Cass head coach Phil Phillips said the Lady Colonels worked hard to earn the victory.

“It’s our cross-town rival and a game where you should give your best effort,” he said. “It’s for bragging rights in the community.”

Cass took the lead in the contest when Mallary Hedden found net on a cross sent by Sydney Vermaas in the game’s 25th minute.

Cass was able to carry that lead into the break.

In the second half, Isela Moraga passed the ball to Jana Morning, who then speeded downfield to challenge the Woodland keeper, who came out the box but couldn’t stop Morning’s shot before it struck net in the 68th minute.

Phillips noted Cass keeper Rachel Jackson and her defensive team recorded their sixth shutout with the victory.

The coach said the Lady Colonels were excited to get the victory over their rival.

“It’s been about three years since we defeated them,” he added.

Cass closed the books on its regular season with a 7-6-1 record. It is 3-1 in its region.

“We start region tournament Tuesday, April 15, after spring break,” the coach noted.

He said particulars haven’t been finalized, but the Lady Colonels will be hosting one of the games.
