Cloe Wong (HI #13) scored the equaliser, launching the ball from the side to catch the Kent Ridge goalkeeper off guard.

From then on, Holy Innocents’ buffeted Kent Ridge with powerful shots, and set up a strong defense, preventing shots from entering the net.

Sharelene Chia (HI #72) scored the go-ahead goal when she controlled a rebound and hit the ball into the net before the goalkeeper could react, giving her team a 2-1 lead at the end of the second period.

In the final period, Holy Innocents’ playing aggressively and scored another three goals to secure their victory.

Yasmeen Nawwwarah (HI #16), the Holy Innocents’ captain, said, “Communication has improved this time round compared to the previous game, and I think that the loss previously against Orchid Park motivated us and made us more determined to come back stronger.
