Des Moines — Sam Brueck scored two goals while Cole Ward assisted on two and scored one of his own as the Notre Dame boys’ soccer team earned a 4-2 win over Regina in a Class 1A State Soccer semifinal last night.

Caden Murphy made seven saves as the Nikes won their 22nd match of the season.

The win moves Notre Dame into the Class 1A State Finals where they’ll tango with second-seeded Western Christian.

The Wolfpack knocked off West Liberty 2-1 last night.

The 1A State Championship will be played tomorrow (Saturday) at 12:00 p.m. in Des Moines.
