Championship Recap

Fourth-ranked Medina erupted for four goals in a 29-minute span and held unranked Dublin Coffman to only two total shots to cruise to a 4-0 win Saturday in the OHSAA Division I girls soccer state championship in Crew Stadium.

The four-goal win for Medina ties the OHSAA record for the most lopsided victory in a girls soccer state championship game, matching the 5-1 win by Bay Village Bay over Cincinnati Indian Hill in the 2003 Division II game.

The Bees end their season having allowed only six goals in 24 games, including none in their final 12 outings en route to the state title, which is their second overall and first since 1997.

Medina senior Sarah Flanders scored just before halftime to put the Bees ahead, 1-0, and they added to their lead in the 44th minute on a goal by junior Maura Gorman, in the 56th minute on a goal by junior Jillian Graff and finally in the 68th minute on another goal by Gorman. Senior Becca Candler had two assists and Flanders added a helper.

Neither of the Lady Rocks’ two shots were on goal. Meanwhile, Medina totaled 20 shots, including seven on goal.

  Division II Championship

2009 Division II State Champions
Columbus Bexley
High School


Columbus Bexley was awarded the 2009 Div. II state championship after Shaker Heights Hathaway Brown was found to be using an ineligible player. The recap and box score remain posted for historical purposes.

Championship Recap
Shaker Heights Hathaway Brown freshman Lysette Roman headed in the game-winner with 51.9 seconds left in regulation to send the eighth-ranked Blazers past top-ranked Bexley, 2-1, Saturday in the OHSAA Division II girls soccer championship in Crew Stadium.

Roman’s goal came following a Hathaway Brown corner kick that connected with a Blazer and bounced off the cross bar and directly back into the six-yard box. Roman found herself alone and jumped high, heading the ball into the upper right corner of the net.

The Blazers have now won state championships all three times they have advanced to the title game, with their first two coming in 2007 and 2004. The Lions are now a two-time state runner-up.

The last-minute goal came 72 minutes after Hathaway Brown tied the game in the seventh minute when senior Lani Smith connected from close range off an assist from junior Kylie Kaufman.

The match was not even a minute old when Bexley scored to take a 1-0 lead. Junior Abby Fagin scored from almost beside the left post off an assist from junior Kendra Wilson.

After the two early goals, both teams saw their defense dominate most of the remainder of the game. Hathaway Brown junior goalkeeper Grace Redmon had four saves on the day, while Bexley senior Amy Mautz had six.

The Blazers out-shot the Lions 18-14 overall, including eight to six on goal. Both teams took five corner kicks.
