Then with 12:15 left, junior forward Chloe McKenzie (Upper Marlboro, Md.) had a one-on-one with SC senior goalkeeper Erin Greenstein (Framingham, Mass.), but Greenstein just tipped McKenzie's shot wide.

Following Little's goal, SC had a great chance with about two minutes remaining when junior midfielder Ashley Carresi (Billerica, Mass.) fired a shot from about 15 yards out, only to hit the left goalpost.
