How it happened:
Longwood came out of the gates aggressive but a stellar performance from the back line defense would keep the game scoreless the entire 90 minutes of regulation. Longwood was called offside and had two corner kicks in the first 15 minutes of action but the Blue Hose would deny any opportunities that were close.
At the 25:24 mark the Blue Hose had their first great opportunity at a goal as they were able to pass the ball down the field. Megan Archer had a good look but Maria Kirby made a great save for Longwood to keep it scoreless. PC had another great opportunity to score in the final minute of the first half, Samantha Britt hit post and Samantha Fink followed that with a shot high after she collected the ricochet. The first half ended shortly after that.
The second half was back and forth, both defenses made the stops to keep this a shutout for both teams for the entirety of regulation. The first opportunity of overtime was a shot for a goal by Sheyenne Stretz.
