The scoring started early when a perfectly placed free kick
from Sydney Baxter found the open foot of Sarah Graves for the

the open run of Harlie Jones who placed the ball outside the
stretched arms of the Cameron keeper for the quick 2-0 lead.
Then, just another 5 minutes later, Addie Ficken found herself
open from her favorite spot on the field and lofted a high
ball over the Lady Dragon keeper for the 3-0 lead just 13
minutes into the match.
Cameron was able to find the back of the net when a deep
diagonal was chipped over the Hornet keeper to cut the lead to
3-1. Not to be outdone, Morgan Grable was able to take the
Callaway Chapman pass, beat the keeper 1 v 1 and slide the
ball into the net for the 4-1 halftime lead.
The game would hold steady until the 51st minute when Mykel
Heese was able to thread the Cameron defense with a nice pass
that found the foot of Graves. Graves was able to beat the
aggressive charge from the Dragon keeper to net the final
tally at 5-1.
