Michigan State University soccer star Laura Heyboer was also in attendance mixing it up with the kids and signing autographs.

Junior Timera Crosby scored the first of her two goals less than 10 minutes into the game from senior Victoria Arangure. Timera netted her second less than five minutes later after a great feed from sophomore Alli Langeland for a 2-0 lead.

Freshman Mykayla Denison crossed a nice ball into fellow freshman Bailey Mines who slid the ball into the net to build the lead to 3-0, then junior Rachel Karsten worked her way past every one of the Freedom defenders and hit a beautiful ball into the side netting to send the Warriors into the intermission with a commanding 4-0 lead.

In the second half, more of the night’s magic happened as the Warriors pulled senior captain and starting senior keeper, Lauren Merz, out of the goal and put her up top. She took an assist from her sister, Julie Merz, and slammed a shot into the back of the net for her first career goal.

To cap off the scoring, Julie Merz again play a great pass to set up senior defender Victoria Arangure.
