Additionally, defenders Emilie Cisneros and Alyssa Lopez were coming off of ankle injuries, leaving the back line vulnerable. They were able to hold off the Indians (17-2-4, 5-0-3) offense — which was without standout forward Tori Waldeck — until just a minute left in the first half. Brooke Rickard cut through traffic on the right side of the net and launched a shot past West Ranch keeper Allison Jacobs. Hart added another goal in the 62nd minute when Taylor Scott found herself all alone at the top right corner of the box and hit it in. “We put ourselves in a little bit of a hole (when West Ranch was up), but to dig ourselves out of there and battle and just push, you cold tell how hungry the girls were,” Mitrovitch said.
