New Jersey grabbed the lead in the 87th minute on a goal from Gabby Galanti, but Cal South’s Makenzy Doniak leveled in stoppage time and Taylor Alderete scored the winner nine minutes into overtime as Cal South claimed the title 2-1.

    this was a tremendous boost for the IOWA 94Boys ODP team an their dedicated efforts to maintain their team, even with little team practice sessions because of winter weather, they really worked hard an put out a solid effort beyond belief to accomplish a win over a tough an talented Cal S team.
