05:45PM / Saturday, December 02, 2017
GREENSBORO, N.C. --  It may have been the best call Williams senior Natasha Albaneze has made in her young life.   Early in the second half of Saturday's NCAA Div.

That goal held up thanks to a vaunted defensive effort over the final 34 minutes that included junior goalkeeper Olivia Barnhill making three different 1 v. 1 saves.   The result was the Ephs second national championship
