Phillips Academy's Anna Bardman scored with 4:35 left in regulation, deflecting home a corner from Carly Kretac, and goalie Katie Wimmer made a huge save on a corner with a minute to play as the Big Blue won the NEPSAC Division 1 title with a 2-1 victory over Hotchkiss on Sunday.

It was the third title in four seasons for Phillips, which finished 17-0-0 on the season.

"It was a perfect season and a perfect finish," said Big Blue coach Kate Dolan. "They were a great team, but we got an excellent team effort."

Bardman opened the scoring five minutes into the game. But Hotchkiss rallied to tie it late in the first. 

Windham's Wimmer was a force in net, making five saves for the winners to lock up the win.

"She made some huge saves then cleared the ball," said Dolan. "She only allowed five goals all season, so that's pretty amazing.

"We are enjoying the victory. It's great for the seniors who worked so hard and get to end their career on top."
