The two face off again after Cor Jesu won the Class 3, District 8 title 1-0 with an overtime goal by Erin McGauley.
It was probably the shot of Cor Jesu senior Erin McGauley's life. Her goal off a free kick in overtime proved to be a sudden victory for the Chargers and sudden death for Oakville. Cor Jesu improved to 19-2 for the season with hopes of a state title still alive. Oakville finishes the 2012 campaign with an 18-5 mark. "It was just an extraordinary shot," Oakville coach Dave Robben said of McGauley's goal, which was the only one in the title game. "We had a wall in place and she was able to elevate it well above the wall. She had enough control of the ball to bend it to the corner. Tina (Haberberger) did everything she could. It was just a great goal." The shot ended a classic game and another very good season for the Tigers, who had reached …

Also, Ashley Burton scores the game-winner in a 3-2 Tiger victory over the Flyers.
A couple of familiar foes stepped on the field Thursday night at the Anheuser-Busch Center for the championship game of the Joe Carenza-CYC Soccer Tournament. And this time it was Oakville that came home with the championship trophy (for the second time in the last four years). The Tigers defeated Lindbergh 3-2. The two teams had played earlier in the season with Oakville coming out on top 1-0. "It was a typical Oakville-Lindbergh game," Tiger coach Dave Robben said. "Those games are always hotly-contested and this one was back-and-forth." The Tigers led three different times in the game, the final time after Ashley Burton broke a 2-2 tie with a goal with about 10 minutes remaining in the game.

Lindbergh baseball also has a big week.
Depth has been a strength for the 2012 Oakville boys tennis team. Tiger coach Linda Gebauer was confident that her team would do well at the bottom half of their order in Wednesday's rivalry match against Mehlville. The Tigers did sweep the bottom matches but also did well at the top of the lineup in an 8-1 victory. Oakville improved to 5-4 for the season. "We have been competing well all season," Gebauer said. "Two of our losses have come by 4-3 scores. We used a 6-3 district format against Mehlville and knew they would be good in that format with players able to double back. Mehlville has a couple of pretty strong players at the top of the lineup and we knew those matches would be critical." Oakville senior Alex Bergman won the match of …

Also, Oakville volleyball goes 3-for-4 last week.
The Lindbergh baseball team was down to its last out Wednesday against Mehlville. The Panthers had a 1-0 lead as the Flyers had runners on first and third with two outs. "(Mehlville pitcher Austin) Simokaitis was throwing real well," Lindbergh coach Darin Scott said. "We had the hit the ball hard a few times but they made the plays." Lindbergh needed something special from Ryan Woodland. The Flyers executed the double steal with the speedy Woodland coming home from third base. "We needed a spark and we got it from Ryan," Scott said. "He is a track guy who does a lot of pinch running and courtesy running for us. He has some good baseball instincts and got a good jump and scored easily." It was the 12th stolen base of the season for Woodland…
