Haight scored unassisted with 1 minute, 16 seconds left to secure the victory for the Wildcats.

“We shut her down for a good 30 minutes, and then she scores from 30 yards just like that,” Windham coach Jim Todaro said of Haight, who also scored the tying goal in the first half.

Natalie Vining opened the scoring with 25:38 remaining in the first half for Windham.

Haight tied it with a shot from the 18 yard-line, off a pass from Emily Whipple, three minutes later.
