The Crusaders beat Central Catholic 2-1 .HILLSBORO — Scenes from a full day of state championship soccer games on Saturday:

The Wilson High girls' magical run ended with a 4-2 loss to No. 1-ranked Summit in the Class 5A final … Jesuit's boys beat Central Catholic 2-1 for the 6A title … Oregon Episcopal School's boys captured the 3A/2A/1A crown, 2-1 over St. Mary's of Medford … and the OES girls lost 1-0 to Valley Catholic in the 3A/2A/1A final.

At Hillsboro Stadium, the No. 22-ranked Wilson Trojans, PIL 5A co-champions with Cleveland, gave up four first-half goals and had to settle for second place.

Summit got the first goal, but Wilson answered 22 seconds later, with Kenna Meinhart scoring from 10 yards 17 minutes into the match.

The Storm pushed forward with a three-goal assault in a span of less than four minutes, however. Summit scored in the 25th, 27th and 30th minutes to seize control.

Wilson's second goal came in the 58th minute, on an unassisted, 10-year drive by Meinhart.

Summit (17-0-2) led 16-12 in shots and 3-2 in corner kicks.

Wilson's season ended at 8-7-3. The Trojans had upset Hood River Valley, Sherwood, West Albany and Wilsonville in the postseason.

Teammates, including Mara McLaughlin (10) and Dana Nathanson (6), share the postgame moments.In the next match of the day at the stadium, Jesuit took a 2-0 lead on Central Catholic, then held on for a repeat title. The Crusaders won last year 3-0 over Lincoln in the final.

This time, Jesuit got goals from Christopher Chertude in the sixth minute and Henry Rocker in the 41st minute.

The Rams got on the scoreboard in the 77th minute on a rebound goal by Peter Bergmann.

The OES games took place at nearby Liberty High.

In the morning time slot, Valley Catholic's girls topped league rival OES 1-0 with a goal in the 51st minute by Reilly Blood. The Aardvarks were unable to get the equalizer or claim their third straight state championship.

The OES boys had better luck in the next game on the Liberty turf.

The Aardvarks jumped on St. Mary's, with Matthew Sipowicz scoring in the 34th minute.

Jonathan Dugoni took Cal Seneker's cross and scored from 13 yards in the 66th minute for a 2-0 OES lead.

St. Mary's closed to within 2-1 with a score in the 78th minute, but Oregon Episcopal stayed on top, finishing the job it started in 2012, when it took second to Riverdale.

The key play down the stretch came from OES goalie Patrick Leon, who stopped a penalty kick by St. Mary's star Tracy Salgado with about four minutes to play.

The 6A girls championship game completed the day at Hillsboro Stadium, and Tualatin beat Sunset
