After a scoreless first half, Coal Ridge struck first in the opening minute of the second half. The Devils responded in the 45th minute with a goal from Sophie Webster. Reagan McAdams was credited with the assist. Seven minutes later, McAdams received a pass from Alonda Ruiz to put the Devils up 2-1. Gabi Monroe sealed the win with a penalty kick goal in the 72nd minute.

“I was really pleased with how we showed up,” head coach Jess Platt stated. “The girls have been working hard to improve on a couple key pieces after the tie against Glenwood and they did a great job executing, especially in the second half.”

Platt said the Devils midfielders stole the show in the win. “They played quickly and with a purpose. It was fun to watch,” the coach continued. “The team is coming together nicely. We have an amazing group of girls this year; our seniors are leading the way on and off the field.”
