8 minutes into the match, the first goal was scored by Sacred Heart’s Rebecca Hauser on an offensive corner. The Owls earned a corner in the last 60 seconds of the first half, but the Pioneers blocked the ball from entering the goal. The score remained 1-0 for the remainder of the first half.


Throughout the second half of the game, Temple led in offensive corners 7-3, two of which resulted in goals for Temple. Senior Katie Foran scored the Owls’ first goal 14 minutes into the second half, tying the game 1-1. Assisted by Sarah Keer, Junior Rachael Mueller raised the score 2-1 just 7 minutes later off of another one of the Owls’ corners.

3 minutes away from a predicted Temple victory, Christina Gotthold scored for Sacred Heart, tying the game once again 2-2. With neither team breaking through throughout the rest of the half, the game went into overtime.
