Senior goalkeeper Amelia Henderhan made an easy save on the defensive end and booted the ball to midfield. The ball bounced hard off the turf and the hop was misplayed by a Cardinal defender. Sophomore Payton Allan was a step ahead of the defender and took control on the breakaway. Allan pushed the ball ahead to Kimble, who had come flying down the field on her left.
