La Cañada was finally able to break through in the second half. In the 52nd minute, the Burbank goalkeeper got into trouble when she hit the ground and the Spartans had an open shot at the net. But the Bulldogs' Natalie Muller fell on the ball, prompting a penalty kick. The Spartans' Olivia Layva made good on the attempt, beating the keeper low and to the left.
The Spartans increased their advantage to 2-0 in the 59th minute. Megan Decker got the ball on the left side and moved it deep into the Burbank area. Rangwala came out to cut down the angle and the two players collided. However, Decker was able to flick the ball past the keeper and the offering trickled into the goal.
"I don't know if I would like them to play better and not win so much," Bilowitz said. "But they're a great group and they are trying their best."
