Defending champion Christian Academy of Knoxville lived up to its end of the bargain in earning a rematch of last season’s Class A/AA girls soccer final thanks to a 2-0 victory over White House.

Christ Presbyterian Academy defeated host Chattanooga Christian 1-0 in the earlier semifinal.

The Lady Warriors (23-0-3) defeated CPA 3-1 in the state championship in 2011. The teams will meet again Saturday at 10 a.m. at Girls Prep.

“We knew coming in that they were a quality team,” Lady Devil coach Mike Felzien said of CAK, which has won four of the last six state titles and was also the runner-up in 2010. “When you are undefeated and back fighting for the state championship again, you know you are going to get a quality opponent.”

Lady Warrior junior midfielder Emily Holcomb scored in the 37th minute, thanks to a cross from freshman defender Addy Cronan.

CAK senior forward Laura Morse converted on the second goal with 29:58 remaining, thanks to another Cronan assist.

“The second game (the semifinal) is always so much harder, every year,” Morse said. “Getting to the final is such a big deal.”

The Lady Warriors rolled to a 5-0 victory over Liberty Tech in its quarterfinal.

White House (14-8-2), which was making its first state-tournament appearance, pulled off a 2-1 upset of Notre Dame in its quarterfinal.

The Lady Devils were outshot 7-3 on Thursday, and CAK had considerably more corner kicks (6-1).
