Kelsey Doerr, Elkhorn South:
The senior midfielder scored with 22.2 seconds to play in the first overtime to lift the second-ranked Storm to a victory over No. 3 Gretna. Doerr and company will play in Tuesday’s state championship in just the school’s third year of existence. Honorable mention goes to Skutt’s Jake Sievers and Nolan Heimann. Sievers had a pair of assists and Heimann had two goals for the SkyHawks.

Millard West 2, Omaha Marian 1, SO:
The third-ranked Wildcats got a second-half equalizer to force overtime. They survived a scare in the second extra session and two game-winning tries in the shootout before finishing off the upset of No. 1 Marian 9-8 in kicks. The marathon match finally ended when Wildcat keeper Jordan Cassalia got her mitts on an attempt in the 11th round to give Millard West the victory and a spot in Tuesday’s state title game.

“We’re going to attack the dang goal.”
– Millard North coach John Walsh, after the Mustangs beat Lincoln Pius X 3-0 in Saturday’s semifinals, on his team’s scoring punch down the stretch this season. For the fifth time in its last six matches, Walsh’s group tallied at least three goals in a match.
