Southern completes three-peat in girls soccer

It's three for Southern High School.

The Dolphins completed a three peat in the IIAAG Girls High School Soccer League with a 1-0 win over the Guam High School Panthers in the playoff final at the Guam Football Association National Training Center.

Great defense from both sides thwarted almost every attack in the entire match with the exception of one lone goal by April Talledo on a goalmouth scramble following a corner kick in the 75th minute. April Talledo found some space near the left post and blasted her shot high over the outstretched arms of Guam High keeper Gesualda Gonzalez and into the goal for the eventual game winner.

Guam High made its first finals appearance since 2011, when the team took the championship against the Notre Dame Royals that year. Since then, the Dolphins have dominated girls soccer, with two-time MVP Paige Surber leading Southern to titles in 2012 and 2013. Paige Surber now also has one championship title under her belt as a coach.
