Sugar River will play for title
MILWAUKEE - Senior forward Vanessa Narveson scored a goal in the 86th minute to give the Sugar River girls soccer team a 1-0 win over Seymour in a WIAA Division 3 state semifinal on Thursday at Uihlein Soccer Park.

Narveson, after creating space on the right side of Seymour goalkeeper Aubrey Buchholz, powered in a shot to the far post to give Sugar River its first win at state in the history of the program.

Sugar River (24-2-2) advances to play Catholic Memorial (22-1-2) in a state championship game at noon Saturday.

Catholic Memorial is looking to repeat as state champion after beating Notre Dame 2-0 in a state semifinal Thursday night. Emily Cervantes scored both goals for Catholic Memorial, which was outshot 8-5 by Notre Dame. Lili Berg made six saves for Catholic Memorial.

The win marked the fifth straight shutout for the Raiders, all in the state tournament. Three of the Raiders' wins in the tournament were 1-0, including over Monroe in a regional championship game and Madison Edgewood in a sectional semifinal.

Sugar River outshot Seymour 5-3. Taylor Legler had two shots on goal for the Raiders. Esther Noriega and Aimee Sies each had one.

Sugar River goalkeeper Rachel Heittola made three saves.

Sugar River also made it to the state tournament in 2004.
