Game Summary:
Charise Halteman - Head Coach
"PW played a strong first half against CB South. Frankie O'Brien scored the first goal of the game on a penalty stroke and Sam Spera was able to find the back of the cage after some quick stickwork. The second half of the game was a different story as CB South had the momentum and scored two goals in just over a two minute span midway through the half. Frankie O'Brien scored her second goal of the game with just over two minutes remaining in the game and the PW corner defense held strong as CB South had a corner opportunity with time expired.

We needed to play with more composure, but the players found a way to stay strong through the last whistle. Credit goes to a talented and aggressive CB South team."

PW played a strong first half and was awarded a penalty stroke at the 13:13 mark when CB South's flyer was told she made "contact" at the top of the circle. PW's Frankie O'Brien converted on a beautiful penalty stroke, but CB South had difficulty recovering from the unusual call.
In the second half, CB South dominated and hammered home two quick corners in a two minute span on goals by junior Kasey Dietzel and sophomore Casey Reilly to tie the game at 2-2. Both goals were assisted by senior Lauren Dougherty. With a little over two minutes remaining, PW's Frankie O'Brien scored what proved to be the game winner. CB South had a corner opportunity with no time remaining on the clock, but PW's defense held strong. Both teams played well and fought until the final whistle.
PW is to be commended for a great season and well-played game! CB South wishes them the best of luck moving forward!
