TELL CITY - Zach Lutgring and Lauren Goffinet each scored two goals as Huber & Goffinet Law Office edged Roland's Jewelry 4-3 to win the under-18 title in the Perry County Youth Soccer League Sunday.

Each team had a 4-1-1 record going into that final game, so the winner would claim the title.

Lutgring scored two goals in the first half and Goffinet got credit for one because she was the closest Huber & Goffinet player when a Roland's player accidentally kicked the ball into his own goal.

That gave Huber & Goffinet a 3-1 lead, as Ian Jarboe scored Roland's only goal in the first half.

Jarboe added another goal in the second half and teammate Kyli Smithson kicked one that just trickled through the Huber & Goffinet goalie's hands.

But Goffinet's last goal, on a cross kick deflected by a Roland's player, enabled Huber & Goffinet to keep the lead.

Goalie Jason Hackbarth made several nice saves for Huber & Goffinet.

Longtime league officer Darla Goffinet said she thought these two teams "had the best players our league has had as a group."
