In second half action, the BGA Wildcats leveled the score in the 49th minute as Kennedy Price ‘22 out-paced the center backs and racing GK of BA and calming passed the ball into the goal. However, the draw didn't last. In the 67th minute, BA's Bartholomew was able to get a piece of a loose ball during the chaos the occurred in BGA's box. BGA continued to grind out the minutes remaining in the second half to find another equalizer, but it just wasn't enough. The game concluded with BA 2, BGA 1.
"I'm truly proud of the effort from our team tonight. They showed true grit in the face a some pretty steep obstacles,” said Head Coach Jan Morrissey. “With two starters hurt, several players out sick, some battling through aches and pains, we still managed to meet the intensity of another strong Div. II-AA opponent. Again, these tough games are providing excitement for what's yet to come of this group...the moment continues to grow each week."
