A goal in the 10th minute by Mitch Moncada (Catholic), assisted by Ismael Serratos (Carthage) provided the team with their 4th straight game holding the lead. Unfortunately their stout defense, which had not surrendered a goal in the 3 group stage games, gave up one in the second half, leading to overtime. The Ohio squad scored again in the 1st OT and held on to win, advancing to the Final tomorrow.
The boys finish 3-1 in reaching the semifinals their first time to Regionals. The three group games were all shutouts, with a 5-0 advantage in goals scored vs surrendered.
