Maggie Moriarty opened the scoring and picked up an assist in the first half. Audrey Mandaro and Izzy Grant each posted two goals as the Crusaders worked to chip away at the American lead.

During that stretch, Jolie Creo led the Crusaders with one goal and two assists. Bryn Carroll and Keely Connors also recorded goals as Holy Cross worked to erase the lead.

 

Holy Cross opened the first 10 minutes of the second half outscoring American, 3-1, with Connors picking up two points in that stretch. Creo scored from Grant, Catherine Guanci scored from Connors, and Connors scored on a free position.
