Freshman forward Jahia Qualls scored the game-winning goal in overtime as McCluer North defeated Hazelwood West 3-2 for the Class 4 District 5 title at Ritenour.
The win was the first by a McCluer North soccer team over Hazelwood West in at least 35 games. West had beaten North in 34 consecutive meetings dating to the 2000 season.
North (17-5), which won its second district title in three seasons, also got a pair of goals from junior forward Skyla Koch.
“It was an unbelievable match from both teams,” Stars coach Nathan Kern said. “Skyla gave us a two-goal lead early, but Hazelwood West kept coming at us. They got the equalizer with four minutes to play on a beautifully placed free kick. Karina made a huge save and then we get the match winner from Jahia. I cannot tell you the last time McCluer North beat Hazelwood West in girls soccer. This was a special victory.”
Junior Karina DuFour earned the win in goal.

The girls really wanted this after injuries got the better of us last season so it was refreshing to see them jump early and put one in right away. Our girls just continued to battle and it paid off.”

Sophomore defender Lindsay English, junior defender Meagan Papin, senior defender Alyssa Pavlacic and sophomore defender Makenzie Smelser also added goals.
