Diplomats capture F&M Kickoff Tournament Upend Eastern Mennonite to take title

LANCASTER, PA - Trailing 1-0 at halftime, Diplomat Kathryn Daniels scored in the 61st minute and teammate Amy Cawley in the 66th to lead F&M (2-0) to a 2-1 win over Eastern Mennonite in the finals of the F&M Kickoff Tournament.

Mennonite's Katie Lamm put the visitors on top less than a minute before half with a right-footer from 10 yards out. Lamm had a chance to give her squad a cushion in the 52nd minute, but her 20-yarder, far-post hit the cross bar and bounced out.

From there, it was all Diplomats as Daniels scored her second goal of the tournament and Cawley - coming off the bench - scored her third in two days.

Daniels scored on a right-footer far post from 15 yards out while Cawley netted a left-footer at an angle for the game winner.

F&M earned its bid to the championship game with a 4-0 win over Delaware Valley on Saturday.

Their next match is Sept. 6 at Lebanon Valley.
