Starting with a one-handed save by GK Jenna Villacres and a beautiful header to goal by Deja Edwards, the Wildcats of Westerville seemed to control the game from the start. After Westerville allowed a tying goal, Edwards added her second to keep the Cats on top going into half-time.
There was a bit of drama in the second half as Westerville defenders seemingly brought down an Olentangy Liberty player in the penalty box, resulting in a penalty kick for the Patriots. When the kick bounced off the top bar of the goal, the rebound was saved by GK Jenna Villacres to keep the score in Westerville’s favor.
Olentangy got back into the game with a second goal late in the second half and the game appeared to be headed to end in a tie. However, a combination from Edwards to Mae Riggs ending in a rocket of a goal put the Wildcats back on top for good!
All in all, a beautiful game.
