Bronx Ale defeated Phoenix 2-1 with the help of newcomers Jackie Jones and Lisa DeChance who fit right in with the veterans and made an impact with possession and overlapping runs. Phoenix’s defense and keeper did well to block Bronx Ale from getting on the board. Bronx Ale’s midfield and defense were solid and disrupted much of Phoenix’s attacks in the first half, but they finally broke through on a counter attack giving Phoenix a 1-0 lead at the half.
In the second half, DeChance took a shot from the right side beating the keeper to level the score 1-1. Elyse Hanly later made an overlapping run up the left side and converted a through ball for the winner.
