No. 2 Westminster controlled the first half of the state championship game, but couldn’t slow down the Lady Wolves. Westminster was dominant during the run to the title game scoring an average of 20 goals per game. No. 3 Fellowship Christian was atop the poll heading into the postseason but just their second loss of the season to Wesleyan in the semifinals.
