How it Happened

First Half: In a scoreless opening half, Gettysburg and Shenandoah combined for four shots. The Hornets took back-to-back attempts with Cunningham turning aside one and the other going out the top right in the first three minutes. Gettysburg saw its best chances at the net from freshman Jalia Musah (Greenwich, Conn./Millbrook School) and sophomore Leah Mangold (Short Hills, N.J./The Pingry School). Musah had the first look at the 6:29 marker and Mangold took a shot at the goal 17 minutes later, but the Hornets goalkeeper Kasie Kilmer made the save. The teams headed into halftime with a 0-0 deadlock.
Second Half: The hosts looked to be on the scoreboard first, but Lexi Cook’s shot went left of the goal in the opening minutes of the second half. The Bullets had the next five shots of the game and broke through at the 61:59 and 63:24 markers. With a penalty called in the box, Bedell was called for duty and ripped the penalty shot in for the first Gettysburg goal. Bedell was a part of the second tally as she found Slevin a couple of minutes later to cash in another goal for the Bullets to make it 2-0. The Hornets Hannah Shero hoped to slice the deficit in half with under eight minutes to go as she blasted a shot, but Cunningham made the save to give the Bullets the 2-0 shutout.
