Behind three goals from Kyra Bolden, the McLean Highlanders (10-2) won the girls Liberty District soccer tournament by upsetting the top-seed and host Yorktown Patriots in a shootout in the high-school title match for the team’s sixth victory in a row.

Bolden, the district’s Player of the Year, gave McLean an early 3-0 lead, then Faith Whare scored the eventually game winner in a long penalty kicks overtime period. Eliza Hager was the winning goalie for McLean, which lost twice to Yorktown in regular-season matches, by 5-4 and 4-1 scores.

McLean blanked South Lakes, 3-0, in the district semifinals for its seventh shutout of the season.
