Notre Dame Academy beat Newport Central Catholic, 3-0, to win the 9th Region Girls Soccer Championship at Ryle High School Saturdayevening.
Struggling Holmes hosted rival Covington Catholic and the Bulldogs threatened earlier, taking their first drive all the way to the Colonel 2-yard line.
Considering it was the 135th time they have played, there have likely been many classic games in the rivalry's history between Bellevue and Dayton.
