In the open­ing match, a goal by Kaylee Gomez gave the Lady War­riors a 1-0 lead af­ter a tight first half. Han­nah Elle­man scored the first of her three goals to open the sec­ond half scor­ing, but the tal­lies would come fast and fu­ri­ous in the fi­nal 17 min­utes.

Chelsey Lind­say made it 3-0 with 16:54 to play. Lind­say fol­lowed up her own shot, which was ini­tially de­flected by Ridge­land keeper Ri­ley McBee, by head­ing it in to add to the lead.

The Lady Pan­thers would fi­nally get on the board with just under 12 min­utes re­main­ing. Court­ney Durham sent a long ball up the field that was cor­ralled by striker Katie Car­ruth. Car­ruth made a move to beat her de­fender be­fore push­ing the ball past a div­ing Re­becca Leggett to cut the lead to 3-1.

But it only took 72 sec­onds for the Lady War­riors to an­swer. Af­ter tak­ing a pass in­side the box, Elle­man scored from the left side on a very tough an­gled shot that just got over a leap­ing McBee and just under the cross­bar to push LFO’s ad­van­tage to 4-1.

Syd­nee Brown would re­di­rect a loose ball in­side the Ridge­land box with 3:41 play and Elle­man com­pleted her hat trick in the fi­nal two min­utes as she ham­mered home a penalty kick.

Lind­say fin­ished with two as­sists on the night, while Brown had one. Leggett stopped 10 shots for LFO and McBee made 17 saves for the Ridge­land.
