Sarah Marturano gave Palatine an early advantage when her high kicked ball from 15 yards outside the box bounced up and over the fingertips of the Campton keeper at the 6 minute mark. Campton would score three unanswered goals, two by Carly Spencer (14th & 43rd minute) and the game winner by Mary Landry in the 23rd.
Under-17 Girls Final
