Lead by two goals from eventual tourney MVP Angela Palmer, Maize South handed McPherson their first loss of the season, 2-1, to take the McPherson Invitational championship for a second straight season.
Palmer got things started with a goal about 15 minutes into the first half to give the Mavs a 1-0 lead. Then at about the same point in the game in the second half, Palmer again scored, beating McPherson goalie Lakyn Schieferecke for a second time.
McPherson got in on the scoring with under 11 minutes to play behind Hannah Hageman's third goal of the season, but that was all Abbey Wilks would concede in the Mavericks win.
