The second half started slowly, with several shots from both sides and a long set which ultimately ended in a goal by Yang. In the last few minutes of the game, the Cougars gained possession of the ball yet again and scored the final goal of the game after a free position awarded due to a shooting space violation by the Lady Warriors. Despite several more attempted shots by the Cougars, the Lady Warriors ended on top, winning the game 6-3.
“We could possibly make playoffs now and I’m really excited,” Bombach said, “I can’t wait.”
