After their state semifinal win over Lake Country Lutheran on Thursday, Royals head coach John Bingham said he knew that his team was going to win the title.
It looked a little bleak in the beginning, but Bingham was right as the Royals came from behind 1-0 to win the Division 4 State Championship 2-1 over New Holstein.
"Because this team refused to lose. At half they were calm and said ok, we're down at half, we've been down before," said Bingham.
After starting the second half down 1-0, Assumption turned up the heat offensively, putting up fifteen shots in the second half compared to just five in the first.
The aggressiveness paid off as Jasmine Hunn tied it all up with a header off a corner kick.
"I guess we really wanted it more, especially coming from behind. We played to win," said Hunn.
Mary Sigler had multiple opportunities to score but she came up short on all them until the 74th minute when she put one past the Huskies keep on breakaway for the go-ahead goal and the win.
"It felt awesome. I know I messed up a lot of shots but to get that one and finish the game it was awesome."
The Royals close out their season with a Division 4 State Championship and a final record of 22-3.
