On the defensive front, Emma Terry had an incredible game. Throughout the battle she had many clutch saves. She tracked the ball perfectly and would stop it with her body or with her stick, stuffing the shots taken on goal and helping the Islanders to keep the lead.

The halftime score had the Islanders up by four at 8-4.

To start the second half, Scripps Ranch put the first goal in, but it was soon followed by Julia Mineo who had her first of two goals that evening. She was able to force a shooting space violation and get a penalty shot. She is a beast at these, knocking the ball into the net at a wicked speed. The ball is essentially impossible to save.

Coronado only had four goals in the second half, compared to Scripps Ranch who had six. But thanks to the Islanders nice lead at half it didn’t matter too much in the end. Out of the four goals, Charlotte Peterson had two. On both goals, she had a very quick release after receiving a pass and would snipe it directly into the net. The Scripps Ranch goalie had no chance.
