[NAIA WOMEN] No. 2-seed Lee recorded its fifth- consecutive shutout of the NAIA Women's National Championship to defeat unseeded Point Loma Nazarene, 2-0, and win the 2009 title in Decatur, Ala.

The Lady Flames scored two goals in the first half and played solid defense the rest of the way to win their second consecutive National Championship.

Lee (21-2-1) took the early advantage in the 14th minute when senior Marina Lima found Lauren Good in the box. Good sidestepped the Sea Lion keeper Tiffany Kracy to poke the ball in to the net, for a 1-0 lead. Later in the half, National Player of the Year Christiane Christensen took a long pass through the Point Loma Nazarene defense from sophomore Jamie Achten and beat the keeper with a ball to the far post.

"It puts us in a place in NAIA history," Lee coach Matt Yelton said. "I think only four other teams have ever won back-to-back titles in women's soccer and to be the fifth is something special and puts our program up there with some of the great ones in the NAIA."
