Greater Atlanta Christian 1, Blessed Trinity 0: The Spartans seized an early opportunity in the Class AA girls championship game and squeaked past Blessed Trinity 1-0. Freshman Danielle Marcano headed home a goal barely six minutes into the first half, and the Spartans defense held off the Titans attack to take a one-goal lead into halftime.
The host Titans would try to crack the Spartans’ defense repeatedly in the second half, but Troy Bendickson’s junior goalkeeper Elizabeth White turned away 10 shots to pick up the program’s first girls soccer title. White and the Spartans defense did not allow a single goal in five playoff games. The win was also a measure of revenge for GAC after Blessed Trinity knocked off the Spartans in last year’s Class AA finals 1-0.
