Listen to head coach Fed Jungemann talk about the game
Wolfer connected with the back of the goal during the 26th minute after teammate Melissa Madrid’s shot deflected off the goalkeeper. Wolfer then struck again only 0:20 seconds later off a long pass from Lainie Ferring leading to a breakaway and score.
During the 3rd minute of the game Barry starting goalkeeper Emily Pratt was removed from the game. Head coach Fred Jungemann called on backup Emily Brunschweiler who filled in marvelously. Brunschweiler played 55 scoreless minutes tallying five saves.
The Team Boca lone goal came in the 61st minute from Brianna Stumpler who headed in a corner kick from Gilda Doria. Claire Cerda, the Team Boca goalkeeper, had three saves but took the loss.
