Nothing New Here

Charleston Catholic Girls Soccer continues to dominate the state as they captured their third title in a row and eighth in program history. In their first matchup in Beckley, they found Oak Glen. The Irish were able to move quickly as they took the 4-1 victory. Claire Mullen did her thing as she opened up the match with a goal. Hannah Sullivan quickly followed suit as she got herself a goal as well. It was then that Oak Glen was able to answer and make the match 2-1. From there, Claire Mullen would find the net again, giving her team the 3-1 lead. Shannon Karr finished it off for the Irish to make it a 4-1 final. The state championship was not that simple though. It was an exciting one for the Irish. They trailed quickly going down 1-0 before Claire Mullen answered to make it 1-1. Phillip Barbour kept the pedal down though, as they stepped out in front once more to make 2-1. Jill Uy was not having it though. She sent in a beautiful free kick right over the goalie to tie things back up. This made it 2-2, and that was all there was for regulation. Overtime number one brought lots of excitement but no goals. This was how overtime number two looked until over halfway through, Freshman, Aurelia Kirby saved the day for the Irish and hit the game winner. The Irish took the 3-2 victory and went home with another championship trophy.
