Truckee’s lead was trimmed to 2-1 on a Vikings goal at the 65th minute, but the Wolverines held the rest of the way. Anchoring the defense was Truckee goalkeeper Izzy Abarno, who collected four saves.

In the net, Abarno and Elena Orozco preserved the shutout with three saves and one save, respectively.
