"(That's) not too bad considering everything and the teams that we play," Deem said. "We (said) we needed to start our process of peaking then, and I think that's just what we're doing. I think we're getting ready to peak right at the right time."
Lafayette didn't offer much of a challenge in the final game — Boyle held a 35-3 advantage in shots — but Hall said it was a good ending for her and the other four seniors, who won't play on their home field again unless Boyle reaches the state tournament quarterfinals as it did last year.
"We had a good game, and it was a great way to end the regular season," she said.
The senior class has a .788 winning percentage with two district titles, two regional titles and two trips to the state quarterfinals.
"They were, as I look at it, the third wave of talented kids that were coming through our program to help elevate us to another level," Deem said. "To see these kids ... from seventh and eighth grade mature and become young women and competitors, I'm a lucky man, a very lucky man."
Two seniors — Hall and Kristan Paynter — scored for Boyle (14-3-1) in its rout of Lafayette (2-14-2). Meagan Curry and Kennedy Collier also scored twice for the Rebels, who improved to 2-2-1 against teams from the 14th Region, which includes Lexington schools.
"Lafayette is down based on their tradition the past few years. We definitely wanted to come out, try to establish ourselves early and get a goal within the first 10 minutes, and we were able to do that ," Deem said. "We were able to put a couple away early, and at that point we were able to start attacking the goal a little more."
Curry scored Boyle's first goal about 90 seconds into the game, getting behind the defense for a one-on-one opportunity from point-blank range, and she scored again from close range in the sixth minute off a pass from Collier.
Collier got her first goal in the 19th minute from about 15 yards out, then scored her team-best 34th goal of the season in the 45th minute, which was only about one minute after Paynter headed a shot into the net. Hall capped the scoring for the Rebels in the 59th minute by tapping in the rebound of her own missed shot.
"I saw a lot of unselfish play out there by our girls. They just did a good job of playing as a unit," Deem said.
The Rebels saw 10 other shots stopped by Lafayette goalkeeper Courtney Morgan, while Boyle's Lucinda Combs saved two of Lafayette's three attempts to preserve her eighth shutout.
Deem said if there's any area in which his team can improve for the postseason, it is in its on-field communication.
"I'm not happy with where we are right now in that aspect," he said.
Hall agreed with that, but she said there has been improvement in other areas during Boyle's late-season run.
"We've been working a lot on passing patterns in practice, and we've been executing that well in games. We're just really coming together as a team," she said.
