The Punahou girls soccer team won its third straight state championship, beating Moanalua, 2-0, last night in the HHSAA/Meadow Gold Dairies Girls Soccer State Championship at the Waipi'o Peninsula Soccer Stadium last night.

Punahou was the last school to win three or more straight titles, when it won four straight from 1983 to 1986.

Punahou sophomore midfielder Marisa Schoen scored on a header in the 10th minute, on a free kick by junior midfielder Lizzy Carlson, who kicked the ball from just past the right side of the 18-yard box to Schoen, who was making a near-post run.

Senior midfielder Kelsie Look scored on a header over a mass of bodies crowded in the 18-yard box in the 25th minute on a throw-in by senior forward Ashley Collins from the right side of the field near the 18-yard box.

The Buffanblu extended their streak of not allowing a goal in seven straight state tournament games; they last allowed a goal in a tournament game against Pearl City on Feb. 21, 2003.

The Punahou's girls soccer team proudly displayed their state championship trophy after beating Moanalua, 2-0, last night.
