SCORING SUMMARY

  • Finally, in the 83rd minute, McHugh took a short pass from senior Andrew Longhurst (Middletown, Del. / Appoquinimink HS) and launched it from 25 yards out from the left side into the upper right corner of the Becker goal, just an inch outside the reach of the keeper's outstretched hand. The 3-1 score would be a final.
