Barber tied it at 1-all in the 34th minute off an assist from junior Abby Watson, who dribbled into the penalty-box area then tapped the ball through an Irish defender to Barber in front of the goal.
The matchup featured three of the top-five goal scorers in the Kanawha Valley with Dundervill, who led the way entering play this week with 36, Watson (24) and Barber (23).
Catholic (16-1-2) hasn't won in a week as it gears up for next week's sectionals with a string of quality opponents over its last seven games. The Irish suffered their first loss last week - a 2-1 setback to AAA No. 4 George Washington - then tied AA-A No. 3 Fairmont Senior 3-3.
"We played 80 minutes [against Hurricane],'' Amy Mullen said. "If we can continue that and grow and stop the transition goals then I think we should be OK.''
The Redskins (14-1-2) last won a week ago then tied AA-A No. 2 Sissonville (3-3) and AAA and defending state champion Winfield (1-1) in the Mountain State Athletic Conference championship game. That went to overtime so the conference could crown a champion and Hurricane lost in a penalty-kick shootout.
"It's good to have some competition at the end of the year,'' said Young, whose squad will possibly face Winfield for a third time in the sectional title game. "We play in a tough section. There's not a walkover team. It gives us a chance to get ready for that.''
