Ike Dunaway did a little bit of everything for the Grandview Heights High School boys soccer team in a Division III district final Saturday, Oct. 29, at Canal Winchester.

The freshman midfielder scored the game's only goal and took over in goal in the final 15 minutes to secure a 1-0 victory for the sixth-seeded Bobcats over second-seeded Columbus Academy.

It was the first district championship for Grandview since 2000, when the Bobcats defeated Bloom-Carroll 1-0.

Grandview improved to 11-4-3 and advanced to play in a regional semifinal at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, at Lexington against Mansfield Christian or Van Buren. The regional championship is 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, at a site to be determined.

"Joe (Treasure) kicked (the ball) over to me and I headed it," said Dunaway, whose winning shot came with 20 minutes, 32 seconds left in the second half. "Then (the ball) hit the post and it might have hit a defender's leg. … Whatever happened, it's still a goal."

Dunaway moved to goalkeeper when Ben Farynowski came out to corral a shot and collided with a teammate and an Academy player, resulting in a bloody nose. The junior did not return.

"Ike came in and made a save when we really needed it," Grandview coach Brian Neidenthal said. "We're a defensive team and we got a couple of breaks. And Academy didn't finish like they normally do. We were fortunate in that respect."

The Bobcats had lost four times to Academy in the postseason since 2001, including the last two seasons. The Vikings won 2-0 in a district semifinal last season and 3-0 in a 2009 district final. They also won 2-0 in a 2004 district final and 4-2 in a 2001 district final.

The teams tied at 1 on Sept. 6.

"We are a couple of evenly matched teams and we didn't cash in on some of the opportunities that we had," said Academy coach Ron Leach, whose team finished 13-4-2. "That's the way this game can be. Sometimes you find the net and sometimes you don't. We didn't today and they found a way to score."
