The Buccaneer’s extended their lead to 2-0 in the 11th minute on a goal from about 15 yards out. The Blue Hose began to rally back with a goal of their own in the 23rd minute from Kristen Peagler on a rocket from about 25 yards away from the goal.

PC rounded off the first half scoring in the 42nd minute when a free kick from Kelsey Yeager bounced over the head of the keeper, where Ashlynn Powell finished it off with a header for the goal.
