The score was still scoreless as Rosales made a save out front with 45 seconds to play. Dunwoody got the ball back and were set to hit a corner kick. The kick was lofted in front of the goal where Dunwoody’s Olivia Odiorne was able to head the ball towards the goal and it glanced off the crossbar before hitting a defender and going into the net.
