The first goal, three minutes into the game, was a thing of beauty. After winning the ball on defensive end, junior midfielder Ashley Ruttencutter started a chain reaction of well placed passes down the field.

Five FUS players touched the ball before sophomore forward Hannah Cooke found fellow forward Byrley open inside the 18-yard box. Byrley took a touch and finished the play with a strong shot to the left side of the net.
