In spite of the bitter cold, field conditions were tricky with players on both Bronx Ale and Harps having difficulty staying on their feet. Both teams were short: Bronx Ale had 9 to Harps’ 10, but both teams played a hard fought game.
Bronx Ale scored at the end of the first half with some nice give and go passing between Tina Cressent and Lisa DeChance. Just before the halftime whistle blew, Lisa took a shot from the right side that beat the keeper to the far post. Harps keeper continued to come up big in the second half, coming well off her line several times to disrupt break-ways.
Bronx Ale made a keeper switch midway through the second half and Kat Murphy saved a great shot from Joelle to keep Harps off the scoreboard. Once again, Elyse Hanley played a great game in the back and Jackie Jones and Lisa DeChance did well to control the middle of the field.
