In an exciting non-league game, West Hills beat Rancho Bernardo 7 to 6. The game started out as a battle with both teams trying to figure the other out. Rancho Bernardo scored early on a designed play after winning the sprint. But the Lady Wolf Pack scored on the very next possession on an outside shot from Natalie Holder. Both teams were shut down for most of the rest of the quarter, until RB had a man advantage with a minute left and scored from deep wing. In the second, both teams found ways to score and it was a back and forth the entire time. Neither team could gain more than a goal advantage. The quarter ended with Rancho Bernardo keeping a 1 goal edge at 5 to 4. The third quarter saw a shift in strategy as both teams adjusted defenses. West Hills score on a man advantage from Rielly Mock to tie the game, but within a minute RB took the lead again. It was not until 37 seconds left in the quarter that West Hills was able to tie it up again on an inside shot from Carly Bockstahler. The forth quarter both teams we being shut down by extremely aggressive defenses. It was not until 1:38 left in the game that the only goal was scored.
