“They are a good team and we knew we were going to have our work cut out for us,” Elizabethton head coach Bill McClay said. “Maybe we caught them a little off guard but we have been playing well these past few games.”

The Cyclones took an early advantage when a missed clearance by the Morristown West goalkeeper allowed midfielder Haley Burleson to punch a shot into the back of the net, giving her team a 1-0 lead with 28:21 left in the first half.
