Fauquier soccer tournament - that would
WINCHESTER — After teaming up for a goal in the 14th minute, James Wood juniors Olivia Walker and Sidney Rathel came together and jogged back to the Colonels’ side of the field with huge smiles on their faces.
It sure felt good to make opposing goalkeepers stomp around the back of the net with regularity again.
After scoring a total of two goals against Millbrook in its last two games, James Wood’s previously explosive attack erupted in an 11-0 win over Fauquier that was abbreviated to 60 minutes in Thursday’s Class 4 Northwestern District semifinals at Kelican Stadium.
Games can only end after 60 minutes if one team is up by eight goals. The Colonels (10-0-2) led 8-0 at halftime en route to clinching their second straight Region 4C tournament berth. They’ll host Handley at 5:30 p.m. in Tuesday’s district championship game.
“We had trouble scoring in the past two games,” said James Wood captain and senior midfielder Katelyn Mounts, who ripped a left-footed shot inside the far right post to make it 7-0 in the 34th minute. “I think it was really important for us to work on finishing and finding the people going forward.”
Walker’s assist to Rathel in the 14th minute gave James Wood a 4-0 lead, equaling the number of goals the team had scored in its previous three games, two of which ended in ties. The Colonels tied Millbrook 0-0 in the regular-season finale, then needed nearly 60 minutes to break through against the Pioneers in a 2-0 quarterfinal win on Tuesday.
In the seven games prior to the Colonels’ 2-2 tie with Kettle Run on May 24, James Wood scored at least three goals and talllied 42 total goals. One of those contests was an 8-0 win over Fauquier, which fell to 3-9 on Thursday.
Rathel (four goals, one assist) and Walker (two goals, two assists) were particularly integral in James Wood’s hot start, scoring two goals apiece as the Colonels took that 4-0 lead. Senior Ella Myers added two goals of her own in the first half, and freshman McKenna Newcome closed out the scoring in the 56th minute with a shot from outside the 18 after previously recording three assists.
James Wood coach Donavan Russell wanted a fast start and he got it. Rathel had the first of two square left-to-right passes in the fourth minute, with Walker scoring in the center near the top of the 18 after taking a pass from Maddy Milburn (two assists).
“Millbrook did a really good job against us, and we were fighting for goals,” Russell said. “This game, our plan was to play the way we played the first third of the season. Really try to work together, work to the top and get that ball in front of the net and put it in. I think we did that.”
James Wood’s superlative defense certainly did its job as well. The back four of Julia Watts, Abigail Ensogna, Grace Hawkins, Anna Woodson didn’t force Sadie Kerns to make a save until the second half when it was 10-0. James Wood had a 25-1 shot advantage.
Also for the Colonels, sophomores Lydia Watson and Brooke Geary had assists, and freshman JV call-ups Kelsey Gass (goal) and Madeline Heustis (assist) also helped keep the scoreboard operator busy. Gass scored within a couple of minutes of coming into the game off a corner kick to make it 8-0, and Heustis had a perfect long lead pass down the right side to Myers who made it 6-0.
Walker opened her post-game comments by saying how excited she was for those recent additions to the squad to contribute. Sami Stevens also played on Thursday.
“We work a lot on culture,” Russell said. “The coaching staff and I talk about it all the time. What do we want from these kids that come up, what do we want from our leadership.
“Sadie Kerns has been an amazing captain. She was captain through the pandemic, working with the girls and communicating. She’s led so much off the field, organizing team dinners, even taking the young players as they come up and making sure they’re included. Leadership and that kind of culture is so important. It’s a culture of team first, and how we can make each other better. That’s really our focus.”

Boys - Copper Tournament
Girls - Copper Tournament
With a goal in sudden death overtime Tuesday, the Kettle Run Cougars upset top-seeded Sherando 2-1 during the semifinals of the Class 4 Northwestern District boys soccer tournament to earn a spot in the championship game against No. 3 Millbrook.
Kris Schulte scored the game-winner for the fifth-seeded Cougars on the road in Stephens City to give them a 9-8-1 record. Only six days earlier, Kettle Run lost 1-0 to Sherando in the Cougars’ regular-season finale. Regardless, they can earn a region berth with a win Thursday for the ninth time in their 11-year history after their 2018 season ended in the district quarterfinals.
Against the Warriors, Schulte scored both goals to give him 29 this season in only 18 games. Josh Wine and Clayton Pfeier assisted the goals while Cougars goalkeeper John Otooni had nine saves.
Previously, Friday, Kettle Run defeated No. 4 James Wood 1-0 in the quarterfinals on the road in Winchester with a Schulte goal assisted by Luke Watrous. Otooni added six saves.
Kettle Run baseball 9, Millbrook 6
Jake Heenan hit a three-run triple Tuesday as part of a five-run first inning to lead Kettle Run to a 9-6 upset victory over Millbrook during the semifinals of the Class 4 Northwestern District on the road in Winchester, giving the Cougars a region berth for the eighth time in their 11-year history.
The third-seeded Cougars added two runs in the second for an insurmountable 7-1 lead en route improving their record to 13-8 with five consecutive wins and advancing to play No. 1 Sherando in the district final after ending the season for the No. 2 Pioneers. Kettle Run will then play in the Region 4C tournament after falling short of a region bid last season following a four-year run of berths.
Against Millbrook, Heenan finished with four RBIs on 1-for-3 hitting, while Michael Aldrich went 2-for-3 with two RBIs, a run and walk. Zach Ewald added two runs and an RBI on 2-for-4 hitting, while Jack Riley went 1-for-4 with two RBIs and a double. Finishing with two runs apiece were Caden DeCroo (0-for-2, two steals, walk) and Matt Twomey (two walks, 0-for-2).
On the mound, Nathan Mabe earned the victory by allowing three runs on five hits and zero walks with one strikeout over four innings. Joe Vogatsky added the save by striking out three while allowing three runs on six hits and two walks over three innings.
Fauquier softball 3, Sherando 1
Meghan Harrington struck out 14 batters Tuesday to help the Fauquier Falcons earn a Region 4C berth by beating Sherando 3-1 in the semifinals of the Class 4 Northwestern District softball tournament on the road in Stephens City.
She allowed that one run on only four hits and three walks over seven innings as the third-seeded Falcons improved their record to 19-3 and advanced to play No. 1 James Wood in the district final after ending the season for the No. 2 Warriors.
Lauren Davis scored the winning run on an error in the top of the second inning, giving Fauquier an early 2-0 lead. She finished 1-for-3 and Ashley Renzi went 1-for-3 with a run and RBI, while Meredith Wayland had two walks and two steals on 0-for-2 hitting.
Sherando baseball 2, Fauquier 1
The Fauquier Falcons pushed top-seeded Sherando to the brink Tuesday, but the Warriors beat them 2-1 during the semifinals of the Class 4 Northwestern District baseball tournament at home in Stephens City.
So fourth-seeded Fauquier finished the season with a 12-10 record despite taking a 1-0 lead in the top of the seventh inning with pinch runner Drew Howser scoring on a passed ball after replacing Jared Vinluan, who hit a leadoff single. Sherando responded in the bottom of the seventh by tying the score with a two-out triple from Nick Mazza before Jack Duvall hit a walk-off RBI single.
During the regular season, the Warriors never trailed against Fauquier during 8-0 and 8-2 victories, but, on Tuesday, starting pitcher Harrison Whitt held Sherando to only four hits and three walks over 6 2/3 innings, allowing one run with two strikeouts. He finished with a no-decision and Carson McCusker took the loss.
Offensively, Nate Dulevitz led the Falcons by going 1-for-2 with a walk and steal.
