HOW IT HAPPENED

Another Barbieri assist created a goal by Junior Sarah Berube (Wilmington, MA) just over 11 minutes into the match.

Clark's Abby Souza (Hope, RI) continued the team's hot start and got one by the Becker goalie with just under the 24 minutes remaining. To round out the half, Lila McNamee (Chesire, CT) scored to create a 6-0 lead. In the second half, Clark extended their lead when Bailey Glenn (Middleboro, MA) put one in the net off of the assist by Emma Tziachris (Cumberland, RI).
