In what has been a packed few weeks for games the Northern Knights traveled to Riverside to play the Pirates in their second match up this season. The game lived up to the hype when these two teams get together as the first half was full of scoring opportunities for both teams. The half ended with both teams scoreless. The second half started with a bang as Jane Cassalia scored 29 seconds into the half with a rocket from 30 yards out over the goalies head. The Pirates would answer off a corner kick and even the score. The Pirates had a few other chances that were saved by goalie Emma Stockburger who made plays all game. With 15 minutes to go Callie Hammond received the ball at midfield and weaved her way through the Pirate defense to bury a left footed shot in the side net to score. The Knights would hold off the Pirate offense for the remaining time and win the game 2-1.
