DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Iowa City Regina's defense showed up once again, but a late goal on a penalty kick sunk the Regals hopes as they fell 1-0 to Davenport Assumption in the class 1A title game.

The Regals and Knights kept things scoreless until the 56th minute when Regina's Kennedy Brown was called for a foul in the box after sliding into the legs of an Assumption player. Molly Gervase stepped up and knocked in the ensuing penalty kick for a 1-0 lead that Regina failed to overcome.

Assumption's win secured the 7th title in school history, the second highest total in the state of Iowa.
