#1 Xavier edges #3 Union 2-1 for soccer title


MUSCATINE (KWWL) -- Top ranked Cedar Rapids Xavier won their 5th consecutive 1A girls state soccer championship edging #3 Union 2-1 on Saturday.

The Saints had to come from behind after Union broke open the scoring in the first half on a goal by Noel Mahood.

Xavier quickly countered as freshman midfielder Kayla Armstrong scored the equalizer.  Annie Dale, the all-tournament team captain, tallied the winning goal in the first half as both squads were held scoreless in the final 40 minutes.

The loss was the first of the season for Union, as they finish their runner-up campaign at 22-1.
