Diane Neudorf tied it for the 6-10-2 Sistas in the second half when she took a sweet cross from Lisa Geary and sniped the bottom-right corner.
Tammy Buick sent Genevieve Nice off to the races with a gorgeous through ball midway through the second half. Nice ripped down the right side and scored on a tight-angled shot.
