Catholic outshot Poca 24-8, with Williams recording eight saves to two for Catholic keeper Annie Crockett. The Dots finished 10-11-2.
"After last year, we had that great year, we lost six starters," said Poca coach Mike Shrewsbury. "We were starting freshmen, starting a couple of girls who never really played soccer, and I think you saw the difference out there. They had 11 athletes who were skilled; we probably had about half the team who were skilled.
"They could make passes up and down the field; if we make three touches, we've done well."
Coach Mullen, keeping last year's result in mind, made sure her team kept focus.
"Poca has always been a good competitor," she said. "They come out, they never stop, they play to the very end. It took me awhile before I took out my starters because they were still fighting. The score didn't show what the game was."
