Winning Goal Comes In the Second Period
The defensive play on both sides was strong in this game as neither team could score a goal in the first period. That would change in the second period as Wesley finally found a way through Griffin’s defense to get a score on the board.
At the 20:48 minute mark in the second period, Carly Setting assisted Julie Snow’s goal for Wesley which gave the team a 1-0 lead.
After Wesley’s score, the scoreboard was silent as the two team’s defenses were stout for the last two periods of the game.
Wesley would end the game with a 1-0 win, which means the team will take on Marywood on November 9th in the AEC Championship.
