"We had a great group of seniors and they really put a lot into the program," said head coach David Jones. "A lot of effort and a lot of hard work from all of them. At the end of the day they are all great kids and hopefully they got a great education, and that's what it is all about."
Charlotte wasted no time getting on the board, posting a goal just 1:15 into the match. Jonna Handra set up Macky Wingo for her first goal of the day. The 49ers tallied in the eighth and 32nd minutes in the first half.
