"Brooke, get your butt over here," an enthusiastic and ecstatic Central Bucks South soccer fan said, surrounded by dozens of fellow students.

"No. 21, get over here," the same fan yelled to Brooke Steigerwalt as she waited for the sophomore forward to greet her by the fence at Spring-Ford.

What did Steigerwalt do on Tuesday night to earn the affection of the Titans faithful?

She only scored the game-winner against Manheim Township with 3 minutes, 27 seconds remaining, giving C.B. South a 1-0 victory and the chance to play for a state championship this Saturday against Canon-McMillan in Hershey.

"It was absolutely amazing," junior Aleksa Peev said. "It's the farthest we've ever gone and it is just a big accomplishment for us."

Steigerwalt was there to put it away after Peev took it down the right side and let one fly. The ball shot into the far post and hit off the fingertips of the Manheim Township (23-3) goalie before bouncing off the frame.

It looked in.

Almost everyone in the stands and on the field thought the ball had crossed the line, but there was no whistle.

That's when Steigerwalt jumped on it.

"I thought it was in," Steigerwalt said. "It ricocheted off and I scrambled to get it. I saw the goalie reach for it but she didn't have possession so I put it in the back of the net."

Chaos ensued.

The tally was a relief for the Titans (19-5-1), who had several opportunities all contest - especially off long throws and corner kicks - but couldn't muster many solid chances on net.

They dominated for stretches, as again, the squad's stingy defense did its job, earning the team's 16th shutout of the season.

"Our defense is so good," Steigerwalt said. "I never get nervous - rarely get nervous. I know they will always stop it somehow."

And again, Tuesday, in the PIAA Class AAAA semifinals, the Titans did.

"Brooke," that same fan pleaded, minutes later. "One more hug."

Steigerwalt laughed.

On the ground, her feet were surrounded by Hershey kisses.
