Lake Forest (18-6-1) will play Normal Community West (27-1) for the state championship at 1 p.m. today. The Wildcats shut out Hinsdale South 1-0 in the other semifinal.

"Surprisingly, the only nerves were mine," Lake Forest coach Ty Stuckslager said. "The girls looked like they had been here before. We talked before the game and said, 'We're out here to win the game.' I just thought that girls did an outstanding job."

McKendry tallied the first goal after taking a cross from Adrian Walker in the seventh minute. Hoke made it 2-0 in the 19th minute, heading in Lucy Edwards' free kick.

"I thought the second goal was important because we got the first goal real early," Hoke said. "It was good to get the second one. It kind of took the pressure off us. We could relax, take a deep breath and settle down more."

Lake Forest goalkeeper Ginnie Revenaugh earned her 13th clean sheet of the season by making 4 stops. She had help from defenders Kendall Hoke, Edwards, Sydney Johnston and Walker.
