Waldorf's Taylor Reeves collected seven saves, matching a season-high for the sophomore goalkeeper from Clovis, Calif.
Generating an aggressive attack, the Warriors outshot the Saints 24-14. Waldorf recorded 17 shots on goal while Presentation finished with 10 shots on goal.
Crail and Chandler each turned in four shots on goal. Three of Carson's five shots were on goal. Thornton and Geil registered two shots on frame apiece. The Warriors also received shots on goal from junior Jennifer Johnson and sophomore Charlotte Madrid.
