"Both goals were from far out, lofted in nicely," Blaine coach Kelly Tuski said in a phone interview. "I thought our defense was very solid and organized tonight."
Leigh Sund opened the scoring for the Golden Eagles in the 20th minute. Carly Bannerman scored Ferndale's second goal off of a free kick which Tuski said was beautifully placed in the 34th minute.
