After taking a feed from Alexandra Citrin, Cronin found some space from 20 yards away and launched a shot over Brenna Shield and into the top left corner of the net. The game remained 1-0 in the second half, when a rocket by Katherine O'Brien almost tied the game for the Bantams, but she shot went wide with 3:45 left to play. Cronin scored her second of the game with just 12 seconds left as she cut to the goal from the end line before sliding a shot past Shield from 10 yards away.<?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
