FLC O follows the D to Regis

Skyhawks reach the semifinals with patience in 3-1 home victory
Hayley Hollenga and Fort Lewis had to rally from behind, but a bevy of chances eventually led to Hollenga’s game-winner and a 3-1 Skyhawks victory over New Mexico Highlands on Wednesday in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Tournament quarterfinals.
Megan Striedel and the Skyhawks had several near-misses in the first half, but Striedel’s header in the 55th minute squared the score against N.M. Highlands, and FLC went on to win to advance to the RMAC Tournament semifinals.
Jane Barden came off the bench to give Fort Lewis a spark against Keenya Pierre and N.M. Highlands. “The play from Jane on the left side was what helped us create those two goals to basically go ahead and get the third goal,” FLC head coach Damian Clarke said of her performance.
Jane Barden’s heady play helped FLC maintain possession, and she eventually assisted Emma Cannis’ goal in the 78th minute.
After Jane Barden’s header rang off the post, FLC’s Hayley Hollenga battled with Cowgirls goalkeeper Scottie Prince before being turned away.
