It took two goals off the foot of junior Brooke Lillywhite for the #9 Warriors (8-2-1, 4-0-1) to triumph in today’s neck-and-neck game against the Mustangs of #23 The Master’s college (5-6-1, 2-2). The final result of the game was 2-1.
The Mustangs quickly made their strong physical presence known when they scored the first goal of the game in just the fifth minute of the match.
The goal began when Vanessa Lourenco intercepted a pass around midfield and quickly transitioned into offense. She crossed the ball from the left sideline to Lynnae George who slotted the ball into the right side of the goal from six yards out
“They pressed hard and we made an early and silly mistake,” explained head coach Chantel Cappuccilli. “They took advantage of their moment, transitioned quickly, and put it away.”
The Warriors responded with resiliency.
