With 15:33 remaining in the first half, Rielly scored a goal off a feed from Sheridan to give Manhasset a two goal lead.

Maggie Beresheim gave Manhasset a 3-0 lead with 12:47 left in the first half on a free position shot.

Rielly scored her second goal of the game at 10:40 and Manhasset took a 4-0 lead into halftime.

Rielly completed the hat trick with 16:12 left to play off a feed from Shea Garcia to give Manhasset a 5-1 lead.

While it was an all-around effort that got them the win, Rielly said a big factor in her performance was working with teammates to generate scoring chances.

“Individually, I did well with feeding off my teammates,” Rielly said. “Everybody worked together to create options for each other. Our defense was a big part of causing turnovers as well as our midfielders bringing it out, but I think it was a full team effort.”

Madison Miller gave Manhasset a five goal lead with 15 minutes remaining on a free position shot.
