The Brebeuf Jesuit girls soccer team saw its season come to end Saturday night in the IHSAA Regional championship game, losing a tough 2-1 decision to No. 10-ranked South Dearborn (17-4) at Varsity Field.
The Braves end 2019 with a 15-6-2 overall record, a fourth-consecutive Circle City Conference championship, a Marion County Tournament Runner-Up and a IHSAA Sectional title.
South Dearborn scored the game’s first goal just 5:39 into the game to take an early 1-0 lead. But Brebeuf came right back three minutes later when freshman Emma Urick found junior Courtney Kelley for a goal and the score was tied 1-1 at the half. The Knights scored what proved to be the game winner with 24:18 left in the game. Brebeuf battled but could not find the net, outpacing South Dearborn in shots on goal, 29-4 in the contest.
Junior goalie Savannah McNeal had nine saves Saturday for the Braves.
The Braves say good-bye and thanks to eight seniors: Elizabeth Brase, Victoria Cassman, Paige Edens, Molly Kennedy, Rachel Kump, Melanie Marshall, Annie Sherman and Sophie Weeter. The senior class made a huge impact on the Brebeuf girls soccer program registering a remarkable 65-16-5 (78% winning percentage) four-year record; four Circle City Conference championships; three Marion County Tournament titles; two IHSAA Sectional championships and a IHSAA state Runner-Up.
