HOW IT HAPPENED
Mackenzie Imamura recorded the first shot for the Hawks in the 16' but her attempt was blocked.
Mackenzie Imamura sent a pass up to Carolina Lucci in the middle of the field. Lucci navigated towards the box and slotted her shot just under the crossbar for her 17th goal of the season in the 30'.
The final three shots of the half for the Hawks were blocked by the Warriors' defense.
In the 64', Sabrina Henderson stole the SWU throw-in from the right side of the field. Henderson would take her touch and sent an attempt towards cage from 24-yds out. The attempt bounces in front of the keeper and then bounced over the head of the keeper finding the far post for the 2-0 lead.
Chowan defense kept the Warriors' offense at-bay as the only shot on frame was saved by Olivia Borer.
Chowan will look to wrap up the number two seed in the Conference Carolinas as the Hawks travel to Mount Olive for a league match on Tuesday, October 24.
