Rice made the big play when it counted. In the 53rd minute, Little Rocks Caitlyn Eddy unleashed a missile from 20 yards.

In the 55th minute she pounded a free kick from 25 yards that found its way through the wall and caused Small to hit the deck for the save.

Effort - plain and simple. If you want a great example of effort, look at Emily Bates. Emily won the game for us. She played like Emily Bates can. In the first half, we were kind of on cruise control. Little Rock came in with a good game plan. They were organized and they were tough. It took a world class goal to score and thats what Emily did for us.On the defense and the shutout... I think anytime you build up 180 minutes of scoreless ball it is a good sign. We are going to have to come out and play really well on Sunday because Illinois is a much different team than we played tonight. They are going to bring a lot of challenges and ask a lot of questions of us. We better be ready to bring the same energy that we had in the second half to the whole game on Sunday.Sophomore forward Emily Bates On her thoughts when she got chance for shot on goal... The first half was pretty frustrating for us offensively, so I just wanted to get anything on frame that would make the goalkeeper do some work.On halftime adjustments and what coaches told the team... The message was to bring the energy. We were slow and lackadaisical in the first half. We pushed another person forward because they were putting so many defenders behind the ball. I think that really helped us offensively. Cheap Saucony Shoes Store .
