"Our midfield controlled the game and made the job easier on our defenders and keeper," Earhart said. "They generated a ton of offence as well and if not for really outstanding play of the Wallaceburg keeper, the score may have been much higher."
Banks rifled in a shot from the left elbow of the 18-yard box midway through the first half. In the second half, Wismer scored off a cross from Zoe Gubinczki.
