CHESTERTOWN, Md- The Washington Jaguars field hockey team saw a wonderful season come to an end in the 1A state championship game, falling 2-1 to top-seeded Liberty at Washington College in Chestertown on Saturday night.
The Jags would fall behind 1-0 behind a Riley Pardoe goal in 15 minutes in, and trail 1-0 at the half. Ten minutes into the second half, Washington would find the equalizer. McKenna Horner took a corner and fired a rocket into the cage to tie the game at 1-1.
