“Rian had a great ball, I just happened to be there to finish it,” Lannerd told the Dispatch/Argus. “But that was all our team working together and moving the ball and Rian played the ball beautifully into the box.”

Lannerd had given the Blue Devils (9-2-3, 5-1 WB6) the lead in the 23rd minute when she beat slipped a shot through the legs of Alleman keeper Claire Hulke. Quincy outshot Alleman 18-8 with Hulke making 16 saves.
