Cardinal Mooney Downs Ottawa Hills In State Semifinals
MANSFIELD --Cardinal Mooney held on to win a defensive battle over Ottawa Hills in the Division III Boys Soccer State Semifinals at Arlin Field, knocking off the Bears 1-0 for a ticket to Columbus.
Offense was at a premium during a scoreless first half that saw both defensive backlines deliver stout performances. Then with 21:46 remaining in the match, the Cardinals would break through as Savvas Pizanias played a hard shot off a defender into the net, which proved to be the game-winning goal.
#9 Cardinal Mooney (16-2-4) now advances to face #1 Cincinnati Mariemont (22-0-0) for the D3 State Championship on Saturday at 1 p.m. at MAPFRE Stadium.
