Sophomore midfielder Brooke Leber scored a dramatic goal in the 5th minute of double overtime to lead Arcadia to victory. Brooke ricocheted a laser off the left post and into the right side netting, from a lovely assist by freshman Gabrielle Ballard. Her goal completed a sequence that began with senior Kalena Teufel crossing to sophomore Mikey Regas, whose strong header was parried skillfully by the DV goalie.

After 80 minutes of regulation and the score at 0-0, players & fans endured a 30-minute delay due to inclement weather. With just 5 minutes remaining before the end of double OT, Arcadia faced the prospect of a 0-0 draw, as Arizona high school soccer does not go to Penalty Kicks in the regular season. The Ballard-Leber connection rescued the Lady Titans, who had been stymied for 95 minutes by Deer Valley's excellent goalkeeping and the home field crossbars.
