First half action and Central is on the attack. Medline Mills attempts to head the ball into a seemingly empty net but Peyton Street makes the great defensive save.
Central in the corner in the first half, and the Redhawks look to score as Malia Velker is able to put her body on the ball to get the Redhawks up early, 1-0.
Still in the first half, and Central has their foot on the gas. Alyssa Lanzon finds some space in the middle of the field and just gets the shot past the keeper to double the score, 2-0.
Plainfield East urgently trying to respond in the second half. A deep shot from the bengals is tipped away by Amber Hunter to keep the shut out alive!
Central is still rolling in the second half. Sarah Scoles gets a lead pass and she goes one v one with the goalie putting just the right touch on it to extend the Redhawks lead, 3-0.
Still plenty of game left as Plainfield East looks for their first goal off a corner kick. Kate Williams gets the bengals on the board with a high goal, 3-1 bengals trailing by 2.
But Central was just too much for the Bengals, putting this game on ice as Elizabeth Bayert gets the open look for Naperville Central to win 4-1 and advance to play Neuqua Valley on Friday in the Regional Finals.
