Oregon lived on shutouts in reaching the WIAA Division 2 girls soccer title match Saturday.
Brookfield Central, the 2017 Division 1 state champ, gave the Panthers a dose of their own medicine.
The Lancers shut out Oregon 2-0 to win in their sixth state title since 2002.
Oregon (12-4-6) had registered five consecutive shutouts in tournament matches to advance. That included a 3-0 victory over Milton High in a sectional semifinal.
The Lancers finished 18-1-1. Senior forward Emma Staszkiewicz scored one of Brookfield Central’s goals and assisted on the other.
Senior Jenny Cape broke the scoreless tie in the 49th minute when she pounced on a bouncing ball near the left post after Oregon keeper Melia Moyer couldn’t contain a low cross by Brandi Thomsen.
Widely considered the top team in the state, regardless of division, Brookfield Central finished its remarkable season in style. Cape (Iowa) and Thomsen (Cincinnati) will play Division 1 college soccer in the fall.
