  • The match stayed that way through halftime before RC doubled its advantage just over two minutes after the intermission when Perry headed home a corner kick from Jillian Barnard.
  • The match then went into a lightning delay for close to 90 minutes before the teams returned to the field only to have it called with 17:21 left on the clock.
  • RC outshot Maryville 10-5 and held a 5-0 edge in corner kicks.
  • Chris Martin made two saves for RC, while Abbey Coleman turned away four shots for the Scots.
