Her four goals, three assists and seven points were all season-highs to that point and she won a season-high seven draw controls and caused a season-best four turnovers. The seven points were a new career mark.

Through four games, Ozenghar leads the Crusaders with 19 points this season, leading the team with 10 goals and nine assists. Her 11 caused turnovers also lead the team and she is second with 18 draw controls.
