The Spartans did not waste any time after the half. They registered their third goal and would follow that up with two more. The Pirates would be unable to answer back. The final score, Pirates 1, Spartans 5.
Pirate Keeper Ella Lowe saw 30 shots on goal. This is Lowe’s fourth game in a row with over 30 shots per game. Seniors Emily Million and Scotlynn Reinhold and Freshman Genevieve Smith also had stops keeping points off the Spartan scoreboard.
