Terra Linda fell 5-1 as the maroon-and-gold continued its tournament momentum. Brittney Neumann and Mallory Erl both scored twice and Hunter added a goal as well. Goalkeeper Molly McConnell got a terrific workout making 15 saves in the match.

Rodriguez was the only club to slow down the Wildcats holding Whitney to a scoreless tie. McConnell was the player of the game for the ‘Cats making three saves.
