Senior Ubaldo Palacios scored the first goal for the Tigers and had an assist on the second Jerome goal by senior Luis Chavez.

“Overall it (state tournament) was a decent week but we did play well. We only had one loss this year and unfortunately it came in the semi-finals of the state tournament.

“Sydney Jund and the backline of Wilson (Miranda), Thompson (Zoey), Rex (Reagan) and Miller (Emily) played a super tournament,” said Twin Falls coach Katie Kauffman. “Super proud of all the girls and how they gridded it out and came out today real confident. The girls created chances too for good scoring opportunities. They probably bounced four or five off the post. This team worked hard all season and had a little bit of luck and the ability to put the ball in the net when it counted.”

Twin Falls finished the season at 20-1.
