The Golden Eagles started out very well today but they couldn't sustain the lead and ended the season with a 4-2 loss to Aquinas today. Kate Wiegman put the Golden Eagles up 1-0 in the 2nd minute of play by heading in a Kerri Hoffman free kick. The Golden Eagles struck again just 12 minutes later. Riley Steen played a ball across the face of the goal to Kerri Hoffman that vollied the ball into the goal from about four yards out. Cornerstone looked to be in complete control of the game but then the momentum began to swing and Aquinas made it 2-1 in the 37th minute and then tied the game just before the half to go into the locker room tied 2-2. Aquinas scored again in the 54th minute to make it 3-2 and then made it 4-2 just a few minutes later. The Golden Eagles came close to scoring again with about 20 minutes to play but a Saints defender saved the ball off of the line to deny Kerri Hoffman her second goal. The Golden Eagles pressed forward but just couldn't get a lot of quality chances after that and the game ended in a 4-2 loss. The loss marked the end of the careers of nine Golden Eagles (Kathy Butt, Kelley Ritsema, Riley Steen, Anna Stegink, Marissa Bliss, Jenna Wiersma, Nicole Ybema, Morgan Vance, and Paige Knott). They all left a mark on the program and were all instrumental in making this a great season for the Golden Eagles. Cornerstone finishes with the second most wins (14) in the history of the program.
