The Final Minute
The score was then three to one with the Lions in the lead until Haley Ward, with less than a minute on the clock, once again dove into the Lion’s defense and took a scoring shot from the right field that sunk into the Lion’s net. There was less than 37 seconds remaining, and TWU was not able to shorten that one point lead the Lions had. The victory went to the Lions with a score of three to two.
Head Coach Babak Abouzar commented on the game, as posted on TWU’s Game by Recap Becca Walters, “We scored a great goal in the first half but took our foot off the pedal. You can’t do that with a team like Commerce. Our team kept battling back and got one back, but we just ran out of time.”
