Riverdale Falcons (2-0) made the hour and half drive from Mount Blanchard to take on the Lady Pirates (2-1) in a Saturday morning affair. Riverdale opened up a 2-0 lead in the first 25 minutes of the game. A wild 5 minute stretch in the second half made things very interesting. Riverdale had extended the lead to 3-0 when Pirate Mckenna Scott scored on a direct free kick in the 33 minute. This was followed by a 25 foot Pirate floater from Taylor Niese at the 29 minute mark. Riverdale made it 4-2 with a goal in that same 29 minute mark. Continental was not out of it as Scott put in a goal during a scrum in front of the goal following a corner kick in the 28th minute. At that point the Pirates trailed 4-3. The Falcons put in two more goals at the 15 minute and 3 minute marks for the 6-3 win. Goalies for the Pirates were Emma Recker in the first half and Ashley Mansfield in the second half.
