Pfeiffer controlled time of possession in the first half however the Falocns could not convert that advantage into scoring opportunities. Each team had just one shot in the first half. At halftime the score was 0-0.
The Falcons kept up the pressure as Abbey played a very defensive formation. In the 65th minute a long ball from the Crusaders took a bad bounce and put Celene Molera in on a breakaway against Falcon keeper Suzie Hinman. Molera was able to just beat Hinman into the right side of the net to give Abbey a 1-0 lead.
Th Falcons pushed forward the last twenty minutes but were unable to tie the game. The Falcons had two good chances to score in the last twelve minutes, both on free kicks. Niki Reis' free kick from 20 yards out was stopped by the Crusader goalie on a nice save. Megan Reeves' free kick went just over the top of the crossbar.
Pfeiffer outshot Belmont 10-5 for the game.
