More than half of the first half had passed when Mindy Rupp dribbled the ball down the sideline and crossed the ball to the center of the net, where Alicia Drewes bicycle kicked the ball for a 1-0 lead.
The Pirates pushed the ball up the field but the Streaks committed a foul. The Pirates sent a high lofty ball to the upper left-hand corner of the net on the free kick and a 1-1 tie at the half.
Drewes took the ball from the 50-yard line all the way to score. The Pirates got past the defense and sent a rolling ball that slipped through the Streaks to tie the game again at 2.
Lauren Kindinger had possession and was fouled in the box. Drewes took the penalty kick and scored.
After the Streaks gained a corner kick, Drewes sent a pass to Cassidy Wyse, who gave AHS a 4-2 lead. The Pirates were awarded a penalty kick and scored, to come within one, 4-3.
The defense, led by Hannah Leininger, Hanna Allison, Sierra Nofziger, and Carley Wyse, defended against any attacks.
