Only a few minutes later, these two players repeated this and it was a 2-2 game. Ten minutes later, M. Pham again wend end to end sending E. Young a pass and her shot lead to her hat trick and gave us the lead. Unfortunately, with 30 seconds left, the other team put one in our net. Our second tie of the tournament.
