Brownsburg's defense continued their recent tear as they limited the Blue Devils offense throughout the match. Brunswick was only able to muster four shots on the Bulldogs.
The Bulldogs' offense was never able to connect, but the Bulldogs nearly found the equalizer with time expiring. Grace Crawford drew a foul inside the box with no time left on the clock to give the Bulldogs a penalty kick. Brownsburg's PK sailed high to preserve a win for Brunswick.
Brownsburg will travel to B&O "Rotary Trail Bell" rival Avon for their next mathcup on Sept. 11.
