Madi Allen (No. 15) scored the game’s first goal), while Sarah Preston (No. 10) netted what would prove to be the game-winning goal. Haylie Beavers (No. 21) scored the goal that put the game out of reach, and while Brianna Waggoner (No. 18) finally gave up a goal in the postseason, the senior turned away six other shots to get her 22nd victory of the season. The team celebrates with the fans following the victory. The fans let everyone know that Oviedo was back to defend their title.
