With 18:40 left in the second half, the Titans earned another offensive corner. Allie Cerpovicz inserted the ball to Davis who passed the ball to Bell. Bell shot, and the Cheshire goalie made a save. Christine O'Donnell collected the rebound and shot again. Cheshire's goalie made another clear, however she angled the ball right into Cerpovicz's stick.
