How It Happened

  • The Mustangs fired off three shots in the first 45 minutes, two of which were denied by senior captain Katie Flores (Towson, Md./Towson) while the other one was high off the mark.
  • All four of St. Mary's shots came in the second half but thanks to a strong defensive effort, headed into halftime in a scoreless draw.
  • The Seahawks earned a penalty kick in the 65th minute and Hall converted for the eventual game-winning goal into the low right corner.
