THE REST OF THE STORY
Lindsey Farrell and Kelly Baumann traded goals in the first 2:13 before Lara Jensen (West Chester, Pa./The Tatnall School) put McDaniel in front at the 26:27 mark before Annemarie Duerr scored 21 seconds later off the first of Abby Blankenship's three assists. Maddie Taylor and Kealey Allison (Frankford, Del./Indian River) scored 41 seconds apart to keep it a two-goal game before four straight Albright goals by four different players in a 3-minute, 35-second stretch put the visitors in front 6-4 with 19:04 on the clock.
Alyssa Swartz and Sophie Bass traded markers before Megan Quattrone (Carlisle, Pa./Carlisle Area) started a 5-0 run to the break with a free-position goal at the 13:41 mark. Megan Kotelchuck (Crofton, Md./Elizabeth Seton) found Swartz and Duerr approximately five minutes apart for an 8-7 edge before Blankenship and Tori Arcilesi (Bel Air, Md./Harford Tech) closed out the run.
• Blankenship found Farrell just 4:19 into the second half for an 11-7 lead. Sophie Bass, however, answered nearly two minutes later to start the game-closing run. Ashleigh Tortorice scored a minute after that and Baumann tallied twice in a 2-minute, 54-second span to tie the game. Baumann then found Tortorice for the game-winner with 3:26 to play.
