The game was basically over before it started with Karns City scoring twice in the first 5:10 of the contest including a penalty kick goal by Martin in the third minute.

Emma Dailey then scored off an Ally Fennell assist, one of two assists by Fennell, early in the sixth minute to make it 2-0.

Karns City closed out the scoring with around 11 ½ minutes to play when Jillian Morrow scored unassisted.

Rossi McMillen didn’t have to work very hard to get the shutout stopping Brookville’s lone shot, as the fourth-seeded Lady Raiders were outshot, 13-1.

Jordan Cook made seven saves for Brookville.
