Early in the second half, Soon ran onto a ball from Sophie Challen and crossed to Sierra Allen, who walloped it into the Whale net. Ten minutes later, Erica Lovelace put a bonbon into the box for Madison Vranesic, and she crushed the Orange side’s third goal.
Next, Cunningham and Soon relayed to Vranesic, who delivered another clinical finish.
