With 2 goals in each half, the Sailors commanded the night and prepared themselves to play for a regional championship Friday evening, 6pm, back at Hope College. Early going saw the Sailors settle on to the turf and move the ball efficiently, looking for the first strike. 10 minutes in, defender Sydney Cleary carried the ball well into the Orchard View end and slotted a perfect through ball onto the feet of Emma DeVries who delivered it into the goal to make it 1-0. The second score came off of a corner kick from Cassidy Broekhuizen into a swarm of Sailors and it was Jozlyn VanTol who directed it into the goal with some part of her body to make it 2-0.
The second half saw the Sailors loosen up their approach and produce some even better build up, ball movement and passing sequences to keep the offensive hold on the Cardinals. Emma Pothoven was especially effective in using the left wing to deliver crosses into the box for the Sailors and Caitlin Bergsma and Sarah Possett made good use of the midfield area to feed the Sailors. It was Bergsma who neatly finished goal number 3 on a terrific pass into the box from Possett. Bergsma would again score after being taken down in the box. The ensuing PK was buried and the 4-0 score would stand until the final whistle. The Sailors were perfect defensively, not allowing a shot on goal.
