Both teams battled back and forth from that point on in an intense game. Midway through the second half, the Bulldogs began to wear down the Chargers and got three shots on goal.

In the final 5 minutes, Centennial rallied and earned several corner kicks, forcing Sarah Hohenstein to make several saves. In one instance, many players were scrambling around and falling over the ball right in front of the Bulldogs’ goal. An indirect penalty was called, but the resulting Centennial shot went wide.
