How It Happened

  • The Captains jumped out to an early lead with the lone goal of the game in the ninth minute of action. Abby Asuncion deflected a shot that snuck by Kelbey Egerland for the lead. St. Mary’s College struggled to find scoring opportunities in the opening half with just three shots recorded.
  • In the second half, the Seahawks competed at a high level and outshot the Captains 4-1. However, CNU packed their defense in tight and made the Seahawks work for their scoring opportunities. St. Mary’s College was unable to find the back of the cage and fell 1-0.
