“The service was simple enough, ball to back post, we were just lax in
marking and goaltending,” Galloway said.
After halftime, the Trojans focus and intensity picked up and Stephanie

Pannekoek, Katie Behrendt and Elizabeth Benson continued to get behind the
ball and stop their counter-attack,” Galloway said. “Abby Beierwalter,
(Ashton) Balch and Rosie Biehl won balls in the middle of the field and got
us into the attacking third too.”
