Team started the game off to a slow start, trailing most the game to Eastlake. They brought the heat in the third closing the gap by two goals and playing fierce defense holding all but two opposing goals at bay. During the 4th period, the ladies picked it up with 2 penalty shots solidly captured by Katie Ratcliff and a game changing steal at the last :17secs by Siena Welch with an assist to Maddie Logsdon who, with :2secs left on game clock, lobbed the tying goal behind the goalie into the waiting cage. Headed into Golden Goal, the girls lost the sprint, but gained possession after a deft save from Goalie Zoe Johnson, soon to be followed by a missed shot from Katie Ratcliff on the 3 post, but Kaia Jennings was waiting in perfect position to pick up the knockdown and put it away to win the game 8-7. After a high intensity game, the Lady Norsemen advance to the next round 1st in their bracket and will play opponent TBD Saturday @ 10:00am @ Valhalla.
