Nevaeh Lewis

Madison freshman Nevaeh Lewis scores the first of her two goals in Friday's Division II state championship match against Granville at Mapfre Stadium. The Rams captured the crown with a 2-1 victory.

COLUMBUS — Paige Eldridge may have been nervous, but teammate and All-American Taylor Huff had no doubt Madison’s senior goalkeeper would save the day.

Eldridge’s deflection of a penalty kick by Granville’s Ella Rogers in the 60th minute preserved a precarious one-goal lead and the Rams held on for a 2-1 win over the Blue Aces in the Division II state championship match Friday afternoon at MAPFRE Stadium.
