McGivney head girls coach Jeff Oller said his girls played a solid game and attacked Nokomis in quick fashion.

"We knew they would make a run at us and they did, but we responded," Coach Oller added. "Now we have a chance to play in the championship game and you don't always get that chance so we want to make the most of it. I am proud of the girls it was a good win."
