No. 2 Saints boot No. 2 Warriors in thriller

Xavier captain Luke Duball scored with 37 seconds left Tuesday as the  Saints trimmed the Washington Warriors, 2-1, in a battle of state soccer powers at Xavier.

Xavier (3-0) is ranked No. 2 in Class 2A and Washington (3-1) is  ranked No. 2 in Class 3A.

The Warriors took an early 1-0 lead on a goal by Brooks Papendick. Duball, who switched to forward, countered with eight minutes left in  the first half to forge a 1-1 tie.

Xavier goalkeeper Owen McCarron stopped a one-on-one opportunity by  Washington with about two minutes left in the game.

The Saints quickly countered and got the ball to Duball, who eluded  two Washington defenders and fired a rocket into the upper-left corner  of the goal for the victory.
