Two teams battling evenly until the 53-minute when Monique Gerrits is fouled inside Norco's goal box and is awarded a PK. Gerrits places the ball to the right side of the net for a Charger 2-1 lead. At the 89-minute, Thania Valencia finds the sweet spot of the net assist courtesy of Reyna Jacome to close out the deal at 3-1.

The Chargers host Golden West on Oct 2.
