Patrick Wilkerson came up with a big save, and Eli Pinner delivered the clincher for Paideia in a championship game thriller decided by a shootout.
Hebron (16-3-1) overcame an early 2-0 deficit, behind a hat trick from Cole Redman. Bailey Pinto’s goal with 20 minutes left put the Lions ahead 4-3.
But Paideia’s Malcolm Singleton tied the game with 2:20 to play, sending the game to goal kicks, where Wilkerson made a diving save to his left to help the Pythons (21-1) sweep the Class A boys and girls state titles.
Gustavo Martinez and Quill Yates scored first-half goals for Paideia. Martinez also drew a foul that set up a second-half goal from Pinner.
