It marked Bluffton's second consecutive win over the Ravens and only third ever in 15 matches
After 107 minutes of heated play, freshman Alex Jess (Piqua/Piqua) broke the scoreless stalemate when she collected a nice feed from Allison White (Lima/Shawnee) and took advantage of an open net to give Bluffton the win, 1-0, over Anderson.
