The Seals had just two first-half corners but earned four in fewer than six minutes midway through the second half. Kapsar had a couple looks from the top, the best producing a pass to Nora Aucker on the right whose shot was just wide.
"We definitely have a lot of depth and that gave us momentum in the second half," said Kapsar. "We had a lot more energy than they did."
With 1:23 to play, Crestwood's Daniella Callaghan drew a yellow card, giving Selinsgrove a player advantage and the break it needed. Rather, the Comets stepped up their pressure to the final shot.
"There were only, like, two minutes left but I thought, This is our chance," said Kapsar. "Unfortunately, we weren't able to capitalize."
Selinsgrove's reserves froze in stunned silence at the goal, watching the Comets' celebration. As the Seals made their way off the field to form a handshake line, Keiser had already given a half-dozen hugs.
"We just have grown so much, and they know that," she said. "They're disappointed but I think they felt the success with learning that hard work and teamwork, bonding, really works.
"I think it's a good life lesson that they'll carry with them."
