History repeats itself at 3A state soccer game


What a moment.

Belle Morel scored a double overtime goal to give Peak to Peak its second consecutive state soccer title.

“Feels amazing. just to put it in there and win this game,” Morel said after the game.

But wait. Belle Morel, a game winning goal at state. Does that ring a bell?

Rewind to a year ago at the 3A state final game. Peak to Peak and Colorado Academy are tied at one in the second half when Morel scored the eventual game winner for the Pumas.

“It was a header as well,” said Morel.

Two straight years at state, two game winning goals off corner kicks and both scored on headers.

“I will never forget this team and the memories we’ve made on this field and our Peak to Peak field. It’s been two hell of a great seasons and I’m happy to share it with these team members and be here again,” Morel told 9NEWS.

The senior admits she never expected to score another state championship clinching goal.

“I was just working as hard as I can to get back to this turf, and I made it,” said Morel.

Then she made a once in a lifetime memory… twice in a lifetime.
