One-on-one.  Mano-a-mano. However you want to describe the moment of a field hockey penalty shot, the premise is still the same.  There is a shooter.  There is a keeper.  There is a goal.

With only two outcomes available, there can only be just one hero, and Thursday, that hero turned out to be Notre Dame Prep’s senior goalie Quinn Feeley, who made a kick save with just two minutes to play in helping the Blazers down the Roland Park Country Reds, 1-0, in the IAAM A Conference semifinals.

The save came after an entire second half of Roland Park pressure, winning corner after corner against the Notre Dame Prep defense while trying to come back from a one-goal deficit set in the first half.

Scoring the only goal in the game, Blazer sophomore Anne Federico rocketed a shot into the back of the Reds’ goal, which would give Notre Dame Prep just enough offense to progress to the 2010 IAAM A Conference championship.

The win marked the second time the Blazers had downed the Reds, beating their foes, 3-1, on Sept. 10, and Notre Dame Prep will now take on Garrison Forrest for the conference crown.

Notre Dame Prep had a lot to play for regardless of who their opponent is in the championship, seeing losses to both teams.

The Blazers beat Garrison Forrest once in the 2010 season, 1-0, but also fell victim to the same opponent later in the season, dropping a 2-0 overtime game.
