Edgewood forward Holly Elsberry scored in the 49th minute to draw even. The game would remain tied 1-1 until the 85th minute. That's when Smith found junior forward Ann Lehecka (McHenry, Illinois) with a great cross that Lehecka one-timed into the back of the net.
Sophomore goalkeeper Alli Weiss (New Berlin, WI) went the distance and tallied 6 saves including several spectacular stops. With the win the Muskies move to 10-7 overall and 5-1 in the LMC.
