Scoring Summary

Turning Point

An early goal for the Lady Flames, courtesy of Gabrielle Farrell, gave Liberty's backline the chance to settle into the game, dictating the pace of play.

Thoughts from Head Coach Lang Wedemeyer

"I thought we were really good the first 20 minutes of the game. Credit to NJIT for scrapping their way back into it and with the rain and the wind it just became a gritty match so I am proud of our girls holding on and pulling out the win."
