Villa Joseph Marie fell to Moon 1-0 in the Class 3A final. This was the Jems' fourth straight state title appearance, losing its last three. It was the second year in a row Villa Maria lost to Moon.
"To make it here four times, there's nothing to be ashamed of," Jems' head coach Rich Finneyfrock said. "It's going to be a tough game, even when you win them. I'd like to win it for the girls, of course, but I'm just happy the girls got the chance."
The Jems' best scoring opportunity came in the second half off a headed corner kick that hit the post. Later in the game, a scramble ensued in the box, but a Moon defender cleared the ball before it crossed the line.
Villa Joseph Maria won't be plagued with as much turnover after losing 12 players from last year's team. They're expecting everyone back but four players for a run at a fifth title appearance next season.
