Madison Zamudio (JR/Mansfield, Tex.) scored at 71:07 for the Toppers to finish off the Rams.
Blue Mountain finished with eight shots on goal to Mobile’s five, as Topper keeper Lexi Berry (FR/Mt. Juliet, Tenn.) saved three.
“I’m really proud of our girls and how they got after it today,” BMC head coach Lauren Lear said. “It was crucial that we came out and played well. Our defense was solid all game, and I thought we looked good all the way around. Hopefully, we have done enough to get into the playoffs.”
BMC finished the regular season at 7-8-1 overall and 3-5 in SSAC play. The Toppers await their playoff destiny as Dalton State takes on Middle Ga. St. to determine whether Blue Mountain gets the No. 6 spot in the SSAC Championship Tournament in which they would travel to Life or Faulkner in the opening round.
