Majestics 3Lady Dynamo 2
Site: Forest Park High School, Woodbridge, Va.
Why the Lady Dynamo lost: Clinging to a 2-1 lead in the second half, the Lady Dynamo ran out of gas and lost its fourth consecutive match. Northern Virginia's Ashley Banks scored two goals three minutes apart to give the Majestics the lead for good. Playing a day game after a night game, the Lady Dynamo simply didn't have the legs to catch up. Northern Virginia packed in its defense to protect the one-goal lead, and the Lady Dynamo couldn't capitalize on a couple of chances in the closing minutes.
Performances worth noting: Carolina's Sarah Kozey scored one goal and assisted another in the first half to give the Lady Dynamo a 2-1 lead. ... Tara Knause scored the first goal off Kozey's assist, and Kozey scored off an assist from Lindsey Underwood. ... Amy Smerdinski scored off a penalty kick in the 15th minute to account for Northern Virginia's first-half goal.
The big play: Three minutes after Banks tied the score, she knocked home the game-winner in the 66th minute off an assist from Zoe Bouchelle.
