In the battle between two top ten ranked teams, the number #2 Northwestern Ohio Racers defeated the #7 Westmont Warriors 3-2 in a seesaw battle.
The first goal came in the 22st minute and began with Steck receiving and holding the ball near the top of the 18 yard line. Steck played a square ball through to Lilywhite who slipped Jackie Lopez in stride down the right sideline. Lopez took a one time shot from a sharp angle 10 yards out which hit the inside of the far goal post and shot back into the goal putting the Warriors up 1-0.
The Racers answered back in the 39th minute with a goal off of a free kick on the 18 yard line by Laura Blanchard.
Just before the second half the Racers pulled ahead in the 45th minute when Vanessa Barcelleiro slipped a ball in behind the Warrior defense to Blanchard who shot low and into the corner for her second goal of the game.
