The Lady Red Hawks found the net two more times before Wallenhorst converted a free-position shot, starting four consecutive Lady Warriors goals which made the score 9-8 in favor of Montclair State at halftime.
Lycoming sophomore Christi Karr (Lansdale, Pa.) found the net off of a McIntyre feed to tie the game early in the second period. But four straight Lady Red Hawk goals put Montclair up for good.
