What Happened

  • But the scots were able to respond quickly. 23 seconds after falling down, 3-0, Moyer was awarded a penalty shot. After being denied in the attempt, Moyer picked up the rebound and stuffed it in for her second goal of the season.
  • The weather cleared up for the second half as both teams played tight for the final 45 minutes. Kai Ketola scored the final tally of the game in the 72ndminute.

  • After scoring two during Alma's three game road trip, freshman Meghan Pfile (South Lyon, Mich. / South Lyon) was kept off the score sheet. She did record one shot on goal for the game.
