Skoglund fin­ished with three goals for the War­riors and El­lie Roser net­ted two.

Roser spun off de­fend­ers on the left wing and dished to a wide open Natalie Sny­der in front of the crease. Sny­der scored eas­ily to make it 8-5 with 6:48 to play.

The War­riors (5-5, 1-2) con­trolled the en­su­ing draw and Roser drove around de­fend­ers on the left side of the goal area and fired in a high right-han­der to make it 8-6 at 6:14. Eas­ton then gained pos­ses­sion of the ball after the next draw. Roser rushed to­ward the crease and scored with a low shot inside the far post, as she was knocked to the ground, for an 8-7 game.

As­cione was able to break Eas­ton’s mo­men­tum when she scooped the ground ball off the next draw. Griffith made a save on a shot by Craw­ford, but As­cione grabbed the loose ball to main­tain pos­ses­sion for the Li­ons with time wind­ing down. Feaga also col­lected a ground ball with 3 min­utes re­main­ing. After Queen Anne’s de­layed their at­tack for a minute, As­cione fired a left-han­der that hit the post and mo­ments later, at 1:25, Griffith made a stop on a shot by Feaga.

Griffith at­tempted to pass the ball to a team­mate for a clear, but Tu­low­it­sky snagged the ball out of the air and the Li­ons ran out the clock for the win.

Folker opened the game’s scor­ing when she picked off a pass near mid­field and out-ran de­fend­ers to the goal area, where she switched to her left hand to score 62 se­conds into the game. Cutting along the right side of the 8 me­ters, Feaga scored off an as­sist from Mckenna Blick 1:56 into the game. The same play with dif­fer­ent play­ers, As­cione from Tay­lor Shep­pard, made it 3-0 with 2:51 elapsed.

Lexi McDaniel opened the scor­ing for Eas­ton with a left-han­der out in front of the goal off an as­sist from Roser with 20 min­utes left in the first half. Cutting through the goal area from the left side, Skoglund grabbed a pass from Roser and tal­lied at 18:45. Out of a spread of­fense, Roser found Skoglund again and she ri­fled in a sidearm shot to make it 3-3 with 16:05 left in the half.

“We wanted to shorten the game by running some clock off,” Smith said. “We’re not overly deep, so we wanted to give our girls a chance to rest. And they weren’t pa­tient enough to sit back and wait; they wanted to come play us. And when they came and played us we’re lucky enough to have some play­ers that can go 1 v. 1 and score.”

Emily Kar­baum fin­ished with eight saves for the Li­ons. Her save on a shot by McDaniel broke the War­riors’ mo­men­tum in the first half.

Goals by Feaga, Folker, and Shep­pard gave the Li­ons at 6-3 lead at the half. Feaga scored off a pass from Shep­pard to make it 7-3 1:28 into the sec­ond half. Craw­ford’s goal came about two min­utes later be­fore the War­riors’ fi­nal run.
