The victory gave the Rams their third straight Condor League title.

Shuta Kobayashi lifted Cate to a 1-0 lead in the 16th minute on an assist from junior Ema Boateng. Schwartz’s first made it 2-0 and Boateng delivered a goal of his own to hand Cate a 3-0 advantage at halftime.

It was the ninth shutout for goal keeper Blake Wands and the defense.
