Both teams come alive offensively in the second half

A few minutes into the second half, the Warriors have trouble clearing the ball and Selma Larbi takes it away. She approaches the box and scores to tie the game.

Then on Neuqua’s next trip down the field, the ball is batted around until Allessandra Russo picks it up, shoots, and scores another goal to give her team the lead. That’s two goals in just over a minute.

What a shot by Larbi and that would be the game-winner. Neuqua Valley defeats Waubonsie Valley and gets its first conference victory of the season.
