EAST GREENWICH – Jillian DeSimone had a feeling something good was about to happen upon sending a crossing feed toward the Mt. Hope net.

Turns out that teammate was junior Annie Carrol, who sacrificed her body en route to producing the only goal Lincoln would need in a 1-0 victory against Mt. Hope in the Division II semifinals. Carrol's tally came with just over six minutes remaining in second half.
