Washington's Shane Mottler broke a scoreless tie in the 72nd minute at Eastern Wayne -- heading in a shot from close range as the Pam Pack escaped the Little Big Horn with a 1-0 win.

The loss drops the Warriors (10-4 overall) to 7-2 in the Class 3-A Eastern Carolina Conference heading into a road clash with conference leader West Carteret on Monday. Washington (9-5-4 overall) improved its mark to 5-3-1 in conference play.

The Warriors outshot Washington 19-7 on the match and had six corner kicks to the Pam Pack's zero.

"Poor ball control, many missed chances in front of goal and, at times, very sloppy individual defending caught up with us towards the end of the match," Eastern Wayne coach Jorg Wagner said. "The conference title is our goal in every campaign. After this loss, we find ourselves needing help from someone else to beat West Carteret and win out at the same time."

Eastern Wayne goalie Steven Stackhouse had three saves.
