A foul in the 18 yard box led to a penalty shot. Daniella Febbraro made no mistake and cut the lead in half. The Vipers had numerous chances but couldn't get the tying goal resulting in a 2-1 loss. In Sunday's final game of the season against Southend Fusion, the Vipers needed a win to clinch 4th place,
The Vipers did just that. Two goals by Taylor Bellini and Riley Millar and a marker by Mikaela McBurney resulted in a 5-1 win. The Vipers finished the season with a 6-4-8 win-tie-loss record with 22 points.
The Vipers would like to take the opportunity to thank the media, parents and all the sponsors especially their two major sponsors Tenaris and SIS Group for their generous support.
