The St. Peter's Panthers senior girls soccer team will look to make it five Georgian Bay titles in a row on Thursday.
The Panthers had a 7-0 record during the regular season against their foes within the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board, with 29 goals scored and only four against.
St. Peter's defeated their Barrie rivals, the St. Joan of Arc Knights, last week to win the Catholic School Athletics of Simcoe County (CSASC) senior girls soccer crown and secure their place in Thursday's cross-board Georgian Bay Secondary Schools Association (GBSSA) championship game.
The Panthers squeezed past the Knights with a 1-0 win. Ally Morris scored the lone goal for St. Peter's in the CSASC championship game.
But the Panthers will be in tough Thursday against the Bradford Buccaneers, who had a 5-0-1 record during their regular season against teams from the Simcoe County District School Board in the Simcoe County Athletic Association (SCAA) loop.
The Bucs scored 42 goals during the regular season, while allowing only three.
The Bradford girls won the SCAA title on Tuesday with a 4-1 win over the Collingwood Fighting Owls. Mackenzie Mix scored three times for the Bucs, while Sierra Lyn Clubine-Tiggott scored the other goal.
The GBSSA championship game is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. at Bradford District High School, located at 70 Professor Day Dr.
The winner of Thursday's game will advance to the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) tournament in Niagara Falls next week as the representative from the Georgian Bay area.
In other high-school girls soccer action recently, Bradford's Holy Trinity Tigers junior and senior 'AA' teams faced the champion schools from the public school board to earn a berth in the OFSAA tournament.
Holy Trinity's senior girls defeated the Nottawasaga Pines Timberwolves, 6-1, in Bradford on Tuesday, while the junior Tigers walloped Orillia's Twin Lakes Thunderbirds, 10-0, later in the afternoon.
