The Dowagiac girl's soccer team wasn't about to let someone else win the inaugural Dowagiac Early Bird Tournament on Saturday.
The Chieftains (2-0) defeated Buchanan in the opening match, 5-0, and then edged Cass County rival Edwardsburg in the championship match, 1-0.
Edwardsburg (1-1) advanced to the finals with a 3-0 win over Niles.
In a closely fought championship match, Dowagiac scored just 10 minutes into the first half and then held off the Lady Eddies for the victory.
Ashley Caldwell scored the lone goal off an assist from Ashley Brewer.
Dowagiac outshot Edwardsburg, 16-9.
Dowagiac and Edwardsburg are scheduled for a rematch on May 6.
