HOW IT HAPPENED
- When these two teams met in the regular season (October 7 at CUW), there were few scoring chances and the match ended in a 0-0 tie. The Stars made sure that wasn't the case Wednesday, getting on the board 9:07 into play on the 29th goal of the year by Josseline Williams.
- Dominican added two more early goals, scoring in the 18th and 23rd minutes, respectively. Williams had the latter of the two scores, giving her 30 on the season. Alyssa Messina tallied the other goal for the Stars.
- The rest of the match saw no scoring as Dominican held on for the 3-0 win to advance to the NACC Finals against either MSOE or Benedictine.
- Senior Tabitha Ortiz (Plainfield, Ill.) tallied six saves for the Falcons to conclude an impressive career. Her counterpart, Abbey Brown, made two saves, while the Stars had a team save as well.
BEYOND THE BOX SCORE
- CUW posted double-digit wins this season for the 11th time in the past 12 years.
- The loss Wednesday concludes the careers of five CUW Women's Soccer Seniors. Ortiz, Breanne Thomas, McKenna Kowalski, Rachel Suarez, and Mikayla Ross have helped the Falcons to over 40 wins over their careers, including a conference title in 2015.
