How It Happened

In the second half, Bridgewater scored two more times. Vincetn scored her second in the 54th minute on a through pass up the middle from Sanders. She dribbled around the goalkeeper on a one-on-one and put the ball in the net to make the score 3-0. In the 63rd, Burke score on an unassisted effort to run the score to 4-0, the eventual final.
