How It Happened
-The Knights wasted no time getting on the board when Sarah Campbell found the back of the net off of a corner kick in just the third minute of action to give Wartburg the quick 1-0 lead.
-In the 36th minute it was the Spartans that took advantage of a corner kick. Alexa Martin took the corner kick, which found the head of Amanda Chlebek, who hammered it home to get the game back to even at 1-1.
-Chlebek’s goal was the lone Spartan shot in the first half, while the Knights took six but the game remained tied at one after the opening 45 minutes.

-The connection of Martin and Chlebek returned in the 85th minute. Martin once again found Chlebek off of a corner kick and Chlebek headed it into the net to put UD ahead for the first time.
-Despite being outshot 8-2, the Spartans made the most of both of their opportunities and would hang on for the 2-1 victory.
