Varsity went into half time at a 0-0 tie. After many attempts on goal throughout the game, the Varsity squad scored about halfway through the 2nd half when Keira Erling created a breakaway after blazing past 2 defenders. The assist for the first goal was credited to Kara Barlow. Later in the half Keira scored her second goal as she connected with a volley from a bouncing ball 30-35 yards out. The ball sailed high into the air and came down perfectly overtop of the jumping goalkeeper, into the net. This marked Freshman Keira Erling’s first multi-goal game as she leads the Varsity squad in goals with 6 for the season.
