Parkersburg junior goalie Reid Strobl made nine saves.
"They outplayed us,'' said Big Reds coach Don Fosselman. "They played well as a team. We couldn't get the ball out of the defensive midfield. They counterattacked well. We didn't mark anybody. It was just a foot race. All three teams that have given us trouble have done the same thing.''
Foster said Winfield still has a lot more to accomplish.
"I think it's a great group,'' he said. "I said from the first of the year not to count us out. I like the chemistry. From sophomores to seniors they all pal around together. I like the way they look.
"I've got three Eagle Scouts on this team, I've got three who are going to be Eagle Scouts, I've got a few honor students. You've got guys running 3 miles and pushing themselves. It's just a great group of kids. It's a pleasure coaching them. I just think we've got a good team. If we get the right circumstances and get some good bounces out of the ball, we can go pretty far.''
