With only 65 seconds left on the game clock, Senior Captain Maryellen Tully scored the equalizer, 1-1, on a corner kick from Freshmen Ellie Mink. In the first (of two) periods of sudden death overtime and with only 29 seconds left, the Spartans worked the ball up the right sideline into the Elks' defensive end. Sophomore Lauren Wiesman handled a quick throw-in to Senior Maryellen Tully who promptly found Freshmen Ellie Mink in the middle of the field at the 18 yard line. Ellie Mink used her ball handling skills to work free for an opening and launched a rocket shot over the head of the Centerville goalkeeper scoring the 'golden goal' and winning the game.
