After halftime, the Senators appeared stronger by keeping possession and creating offensive attacks. They were rewarded for their tenacity when Peyton McNamara of the Senators found the back of the net with 33 minutes remaining in the match to cut Staples’ lead in half.
The Wreckers' defense, lead by Olivia Ronca ’18, Morgan McWhirter ’17, Mia Gonzalez '20 and Catherine Sprouls '19, was able to withstand McMahon’s offensive pressure after letting in the one goal. Their defense was able to prevent the Senators from tying the game.
"Today we proved we can withstand pressure for basically a whole half and also capitalize on our opportunities," Sivinski said. “We did our jobs and got the result that we needed.”
