In a flurry in front of the opposing goal, junior Colleen Farrell took a shot that had just rebounded off Mount Saint Dominic’s goalie Katie Bolger and put it between the bars to put the Hillbillies in front 1-0. The Hillbillies and the Lady Lions had been knotted in a scoreless tie at halftime until Farrell’s second-half goal. Jillian Sprong added another goal to help the Hillbillies to their second win of the young season. Goalie Diane Flores earned her second straight shutout.
