On this Play of the Week, Annie Fitzgerald comes up in the clutch on a big stage. Presented by Trunnell Insurance.

We made the trip down to Washington High School for the 2A girls’ soccer super-sectionals. Benet Academy looks to return to state but standing in the way is a Peoria Notre Dame team that hasn’t conceded a goal all postseason.

With the game scoreless in extra time, Anna Casmere sends in a cross that bounces right to Annie Fitzgerald. The freshman then lofts it over the goalie’s head and into the back of the net. That goal helps lift Benet Academy over Peoria Notre Dame to win the super-sectional title.

Dying moments of the game as Maddie Stickelmaier stands over a corner for the Irish. She finds the head of her teammate but the effort on net is caught by Shannon Clarke.
