In the 29th minute, Joanna Stewart fed a cross to Madrid at the top of the penalty box and she mimicked Ferring’s goal. Less than minute later, Katie Lamendola sent a pass up the middle to Madrid to out-raced the Sailfish defense to head the ball past Morrell.
Ferring closed out the scoring in the second half with a pair of late goals. In the 73rd minute, Michelle Tarasiuk sent a long pass up the right side. Sarah Wolfer chased it down in the corner and whipped a cross into the middle where Ferring gathered it in and found the back of the net.

In the 81st minute, the Sailfish gave away the ball in the Buccaneers’ defensive third and Lamendola cleared a ball down the field to Ferring on a breakaway and Ferring’s shot slipped under Webb’s reach.
