Milton's first corner of the match yielded the game's only goal when a Williamsport defender deflected a ball into her goal for a 1-0 Milton win.
The final score mattered little, though, as the Millionaire girls helped head coach J. Scott McNeill carry on his yearly pinkout game tradition.
"The parents and the girls were really excited about the event," McNeill said. "The parents went and got more t-shirts and brought pink baked goods to sell. They told me that between the boys game Saturday and the game tonight we will have raised over $500 for the breast cancer center. That's really cool."

Williamsport wore pink jerseys for the game and even raffled off the game ball.
In the game, Williamsport continued to show improvement, holding Milton to just two second half shots on goal. The Millionaires' defense also made it difficult for the Black Panthers to build any type of rhythm throughout the contest.
The lone breakthrough was setup when Mackenna Miller, who had six of the Black Panthers' 10 shots, slid through Williamsport's defense and forced the game's first corner with a blocked shot. Sara Anspach was called up from the defense to take the corner, which she put directly to the far post, forcing the defense to attempt to clear the ball over the goal.
"For us it's about scoring the first goal. It's always a big confidence boost," Milton coach Max Campbell said. "We are competing right now and the girls know we have seven games left and need to win four."
Williamsport controlled the midfield throughout the contest and kept possession by stringing short passes together and slowly moving up the field.
"Williamsport stepped up their game tremendously from last year," Campbell said. "They are doing a lot of good things. I see a lot of potential in them."
Olivia Mendler created a few solid scoring chances for Williamsport. In the first half Williamsport nearly leveled the score when Mendler and Kaitlin Caringi missed on a low cross. Mendler sent a nice ball across the face of the goal, but Caringi missed it by inches.
"We had two or three really nice chances in the first half," McNeill said. "We work hard in practice and we want to see improvement each game."
