The Valkyries defense was led by Amanda Issacs who stopped one of the Colts six shots.

The Colts were the two-time defending state champs.  

Heuglin made 1-0 with a shot from 35 yards out in the 24th minute.

Gabrielle added to the lead with a goal on a free-kick in the corner of the box in the 35th minute.

Durik determined the final score when she tapped in a through ball from Heuglin in the the 61st minute.
