Sophomore Alle Sharlip (Kentfield, CA) scored the first goal of the game off her noggin just five minutes in on a crossing pass by Yeatman. Yeatman then headed in a cross from junior Becky Mann (Ridgefield, CT) in the 13th minute, and the Jumbos were off and rollings. Another goal by Yeatman made it 3-0 at the half. Sophomore Elizabeth Tooley (Syracuse, NY) scored unassisted and junior Lynn Cooper (Wilton, CT) headed one in late for teh 5-0 final.
