The second goal was scored by #10 Leslie Canuso with 21:10 left. With Bishop Eustace up by two, Edgewood started to move the ball. Edgewood's Karin Rainey and Dianna Henhaffer each had good scoring opportunities but were stopped by #98 Kate Shovlin.

Coaches Corner: Edgewood's Coach Mrs. Sherry Cappello feels the top 3 teams in the conference are Shawnee, then Cherokee, followed by Eastern. Coach Cappello would also like to highlight some of her players: Karin Rainey was 2nd Team All Conference last year and played in the Futures Program, and is one of the tri-captains. Tiffany Leach is another of the tri-captains. Although injured, Megan Ulicny is the other tri-captain who also played in Europe with the Futures Program. Also joining this list are: Tiffany Hill, Kate Wilhelm, Dianna Henhaffer, Amanda Bradis, Taylor Tronco, and Amy Muff.
