After a scrum, the ball is picked up by freshman Nia Muhammed. She found the outside of the scrum and ran past the entire Taft team to be tackled in the In-Goal Area where Muhammed touched the ball to score the try. Bringing the score to 17-5.

Maura Gilbert kicks the extra points. Lane up 19-5

After a successful Taft score and Taft bringing the ball all the way to the Goal Line, Lane has a successful defensive stop and prevents Taft from adding any more points to the score.

Following the defensive stop, the referee called the game due to lightning.

With that win, Lane has moved on to the next round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
