"It was a great team win, starting in goal with Gislina Saul, who made some huge saves," Chatham coach Hilary Renna said. "Our defense played tight, allowing only two goals in the first half and four in the second. Then our attack did a great job of making each of our possessions count. They played with a ton of composure, patience and determination."

It was a strong showing for Chatham's sophomore class. Beth Kuyk, who scored a goal, Ballard, Wingate and Saul are all classmates. Oak Knoll is 4-2.
