call. Junior forward Stefanee Pace launched a free kick from near
midfield in the 73rd minute, creating a scramble in front of the
net as the ball squirted back to senior Jasmine Edwards.

Hall, takes their playoff spot, sending the seniors home with
nothing to show for in their final game at Yurcak Field.
