Allen deposited the game-winning goal on a Chloe Mattson assist with 48 seconds left before halftime, lifting the Crimson Tide to a 1-0 victory over Middlebury. The younger sister of former Tide star Lauren Allen, Paige hasn't missed a beat while leading her team through a COVID-shortened season. Sage MacAuley and Ava Guarriello round out a lethal trio of sophomore strikers, giving coach Rob Moran lots of optimism about the next few seasons.

If Spaulding can hang onto a top-8 ranking, the team will host a playoff game for the first time in eight years.
