Blain’s second goal featured excellent ball movement by the Strikers as Erica Anderson made a pass up to Abby Mahu, and Mahu sent a cross into space behind the Kingston defense allowing Blain to use her speed to get to the ball and score.

Kingston continued the pressure, scoring again, but Chatham’s defense shut the game down to hold onto the win.
