And you'd expect that the NCAA Championship game would be close. Both assumptions turned out to be true.Meanwhile, way to go Cats!
The Cats had a lots of scoring opportunities in the first half, but seemed to have a little trouble finding the net, hitting the post 5 times.

But just as they've done all year, when one Cat LAXer goes down, a couple more step.
Sarah Albrecht tied the game early in the 2nd half, 3-3, and actually was behind 4-3 before Aly Josephs and Albrecht went on a tear to put the game out of reach.
Lindsey Munday also scored, but missed tieing Coach Kelly Amonte Hiller's 132 assist record by 4 assists.
