"I just took a shot and it came right back to me. I just had to go again," Lemanski said.

One goal was enough in a game dominated by great defensive stops and excellent goalie play from Seton Keough's Becca Wallace and Mount de Sales' Eve Lukowksi.

Seton Keough's defense was anchored by Emani Byrd, Hannah Tavik and Kathleen Sigwart.

"Our defense is amazing," Lemanski said. "You can always trust they will be there for us."

That defense had close calls in each half.

With 14:18 left in the first half, Sailor forward Julianna Shearer had a breakaway, but her hard shot leaked wide.

Lacy Cole had a shot on goal that was saved by Wallace with 10:15 remaining in the second half.

The Sailors' back line features Lauren Hiltz, Lauren Guzman and Laura Gretz, but the Gators had solid scoring chances in both halves thanks to pressure from Alisha Locklear, Katie Audino, Ciara Saunders and Christine Tomasic.

"Our defense was outstanding," Mount de Sales coach Mary Gentner said. "It was anybody's ballgame and the ball just didn't bounce our way."

C Conference

Until last year, St. Timothy's hadn't won a C Conference championship since 2004. Now it has two in a row.

St. Tim's got two goals from senior Olivia Weese to earn a 2-1 victory over Catholic High in the IAAM C Conference title game.

"This wasn't an easy game," said Weese, who scored twice in a game for the first time in her career. "We'd lost to them, but we knew there wasn't that much difference between us. We knew we had the opportunity to win and we worked hard and earned it."

Though St. Tim's had beaten Catholic to win last year's title on strokes, it was still St. Tim's (10-3 in the league) who came in to this game as the underdog. No. 1 seed Catholic (9-1 in league play), had won the regular-season championship and had two regular-season wins over the No. 3 seed. But in the title game, a goal by Rebecca Kempske wasn't enough to stop St. Tim's.

"When we got my goal, to make it 2-1 [with 8:02 to play] I thought we could win," said Kempske, a sophomore. "But this was still a great year."
