The Waves got on the scoreboard thanks to Giammona earning the team a free-kick in the 18th minute. Watson successfully juked Broncos redshirt senior goalie Marlee Nicolos and converted on the goal. The free kick was Watson’s eight career free-kick — which earns her a new school record.
The Broncos responded to the Waves aggression with offense of their own, having 12 shots compared to the Waves’ five. Broncos freshman midfielder Annie Karich started a play which eventually ended with a goal from senior midfielder Ellie Glenn in the 73rd minute.
In the 84th minute, the Waves tried clearing the ball from the midfield, but Karich found senior forward Izzy D’Aquila, who sent a bullet of a shot from 30 yards out.
The Waves await the results of the WCC postseason selection show — which is Monday, Nov. 7.
