HOW IT HAPPENED
30": Bou Aziz picked up the ball at midfield and drove at the Wentworth defense, who continually backed off until she was in shooting range. She picked her spot right over the goalie's head and gave the Lions a 1-0 lead from 30 yards out.
47": Bruce carried the ball up the line on the left side until she cut inside towards the net, continuing on weaving in and out of defenders until getting one on one with the keeper. She drove a low shot to the left corner for the hosts second goal of the night.
72": The Lions earned a free kick in a dangerous position outside the box. The ball was sent to the far post where Cosgrove headed back into the path of Bou Aziz, who fired past the goalkeeper for her second goal of the night.
