47:30 DHS PC An Allessie diagonal finds an open teammate in front of a yawning cage, but the ball goes off a foot

35:15 Allessie with an exquisite 70-yard diagonal pass which is received by a teammate, but can’t get a good shot on the goal cage on the front end. That gives you the idea of this sophomore’s physical gifts as well as her game sense
