Sara Lindenmuth scored and Emily Oleksiuk was outstanding in net as Archbishop Wood successfully defended its Catholic League girls' soccer championship with a 1-0 victory over Archbishop Ryan yesterday at La Salle University.
Oleksiuk was solid, securing her ninth shutout of the season. Her moment in this title game came late in the second half, with Wood leading.
The senior keeper, who had made other big saves in the half, stopped a penalty shot.
The Ragdolls had been awarded an indirect kick from 10 yards out. In the scramble to stop the shot, a hand ball was called on the Vikings, resulting in the penalty shot.
