Highlanders coach Carlton Chan said Bentley was hit on the shot and scored anyway.

“She was wincing in pain,” he said. “I told her that her shot was the winning shot because Berkeley had too high a hill to climb.”

Lane Imeh had five goals for Berkeley. Christina Keung had three goals for the Yellowjackets while Sienna Prak-Perry scored twice and added an assist.
