Holy Trinity claimed its second consecutive SCISA 1A girls soccer title on Friday in Columbia, rallying from a one-goal deficit at halftime for a thrilling 3-2 victory over Cambridge Academy.
Trailing 2-1 at halftime, the Mighty Lions locked in on defense after the break and punched in two goals to add the 2021 title to their 2019 crown after being denied the opportunity to defend their crown a year ago due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Best of all for the Mighty Lions, all three goal scorers from the championship game will be back to make a run at a three-peat, as eighth-graders Callah Dando and Ava Shearon found the back of the net along with sophomore Ella Cooler.
Junior goalkeeper Mary Clanton Bozard also returns after a stellar performance all season long, including eight saves to preserve the narrow margin in the title game for the Mighty Lions, who finished the season with an 8-2 record.
