Double-OT goal lifts Xavier to 7th State Title

Posted: Updated:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

 The Xavier Saints did it again. Xavier out-lasted Central DeWitt, defeating the Sabers 1-0 in double overtime.

Both teams had chances in regulation, but neither could capitalize. Central DeWitt appeared to break through on a goal by Jacob Van Laere, but that was nullified by an offside call during first half play.

After more than 90 minutes of scoreless play, the Saints' Luke Duball finally got it done, juking a pair of defenders, and then lifting a shot past the keeper with his left foot.

The win marked the 7th state championship for Xavier and the 4th since 2010.
