Kristi King scored the opening goal in the first half on a Meade corner penalty with a strong-side flick shot off Carsen Short’s centering pass from the right edge of the circle. Carsen Short scored on two Meade penalty corners in the second half with assists from Kristi King and Erin Heritage. For the game winning goal, Carsen Short settled a pass from Kristi King near the end line and dribbled the ball past the goal keeper to tap it in on the long side. Carsen Short scored the final goal of the match with a well-placed flick shot towards the long side of the goal off a pass from Erin Heritage. Captains’ Player of the Game is Maggy Taylan for anchoring the defense in the first period as full back, and later stepping into the half back position and forcing several critical turnovers in the mid-field to keep the Meade offense on the attack in the final 15 minutes of play. Coaches’ Player of the Game is Carsen Short for her persistence on the attack and shot placement. Honorable mention goes to Aurelia Couture for putting both speed and sense of urgency into Meade’s attack. Aurelia created multiple corner opportunities for the Mustangs, ultimately paying off in two Meade goals.
