In a rematch of the 2017 Regional Finals, the fifth-seeded Noblesville Millers defeated the 12th seed Guerin Catholic Golden Eagles 15-8 on Tuesday for the right to advance to the Regional Finals for the third year in a row.

The Millers took a 3-0 lead with 19:42 remaining in the first half and maintained the advantage when junior Kylie Morris hit the back of the net off of a pass from junior Kaylin Mertens at the 4:11 mark. The Eagles mounted a comeback, scoring three goals to tie the game with 49 seconds left in the first half. Morris took the draw and drove to the goal to score with only 1.9 seconds left in the half, putting the Millers back up by a score of 6-5.

The Millers started the second half with the hot sticks, scoring four goals, including a pair by freshmen Emma Potter, by the 17:11 mark, making the lead to 10-5. The game was back and forth the remainder of the game, ending with two goals by junior Kayla Kubel in the last two minutes of the game.

Offensively, the Millers were led by four players who each scored three goals and had one assist (Morris, Potter, Kubel and Mertens). Defensively, the Millers had two players with a blocked pass, two interceptions and two forced turnovers each (juniors Erin Wilson and Grace Hammond), along with Kubel who forced three turnovers. Senior Goalie Meredith Hayes stopped a season-high 65 percent of Guerin’s shots.

The Millers (14-8-1) will face the Kingsmen from Penn High School in the Regional Finals game. The date and time of the game is yet to be determined.
