July 31, 2016 — Long Island 8, Philadelphia 4

FULL TIME We’ll be back soon for the final between Long Island and Boston

FULL TIME The Force let Devon Wills into their heads in the second half, not scoring in the final 26 minutes 

FULL TIME Long Island were back on their heels for the first third of this game, but the Sound’s fortunes improved by getting Katrina Dowd the ball 

FULL TIME At the final siren, Long Island takes the win, 8-4

38:31 PHI YELLOW Katie Hersch with a check to the head; not the best time for a penalty
37:45 LI GOAL Alyssa Leonard with the goal that surely sends the astound to the final; Storm lead 8-4

35:30 LI GOAL Katrina Dowd looks like she is playing hopscotch as she weaves through traffic to score a wondergoal! Sound lead 7-4

34:03 Kara Mupo is down on the turf; time is out for the injury

29:25 LI GOAL Dowd with the EWO goal and the Sound lead 6-4

28:30 PHL YELLOW Madison Cyr is offside and will sit for one minute

25:15 LI GOAL Katrina Dowd whirls like a dervish and finds a way to beat Bianco with a shot; Long Island leads 5-4

22:30 PHL YELLOW Mupo is offside and will sit for a minute

HALFTIME I think the Philadelphia attack has really hit upon a combination on attack with Kara Mupo, Canadian Kailyn Morrisette, and one of the oldest players in the league, Hilary Bowen

HALFTIME Philadelphia is still punching above its weight against a Long Island team which should by all rights be winning

HALFTIME It’s honors even as the team’s head to the locker room tied 4-4

19:41 Julie Gardner collapses in the fan holding her leg; does not look promising

17:20 LI GOAL Katrina Dowd, despite getting fouled, somehow manages to get it to Fratzke for the goal that levels matters at 4-4

15:30 LI GOAL Nice hi-lo from Katie Rowan to Erin Collins and the score is 4-3

13:39 PHL GOAL Mupo between the wickets! Force lead 4-2

12:30 LI GOAL Alyssa Leonard with a crafty shot from the doorstep! Sound are within 3-2

7:20 PHL GOAL Alyssa Murray finds room on the right wing after Michelle Tumolo picks off an ill-advised pass; Force up 3-1

5:45  PHL GOAL Kara Mupo scores and the Force lead 2-1

4:15 PHL GOAL Kailyn Morrissette with the EWO goal; game tied 1-1

3:00 LI YELLOW Offside on the Storm and a player leaves the pitch for a minute

2:30 LI GOAL Hillary Fratzke with the forehander; Long Island leads 1-0

0:00 The game is on

PREGAME Philadelphia is wearing real with white numbers; Long Island in the blue kilts with white tops and red trim

PREGAME The teams are warming up under bright skies with a touch of humidity,temperatures around 83

PREGAME Philadelphia is the hottest team in the league, winning both of its matches to end the regular season

PREGAME Long Island is the No. 1 seed and regular season champion, with strength in all facets of the game

PREGAME These two sides were locked in a 4-4 tie in the first half before yesterday’s storm pushed the game to today 

PREGAME Back at Homewood Field for the second UWLX semifinal between Long Island and Philadelphia
