By halftime, the score was 2-2 after a late first-half goal by Cassidy Patterson.

With time ticking down, Barrack’s defense started to pressure more to try and get the ball back, but Babicki found herself one on one with a defender, saw an opening and with 34 seconds left in the game, took it around the crease to the front of the goal and found the back of the net to give Solebury the win.
