Torrance responded later in the half on an individual run through traffic that took advantage of a small window before it could be shut by the closing Costa keeper.

Torrance came out on the attack & put pressure on Costa in the 2nd half. Midway through, Torrance was able to dial in with a number of direct & corner kicks leading to one corner that slotted perfectly past the Costa defense, under the crossbar and inside the far post for the unassisted equalizer.

In this 2-2 tie, Torrance outshot Costa 13-7 with Costa keeper Nonie Frishette recording 8 saves with most coming in the 2nd half.
