  • Katie Stewart Frizzell had a chance to double the Cardinal lead with 43:29 expired, but Bears' goaltender Sarah Schollenberger stopped the shot, keeping the game within reach for the hosts.  
  • Coast Guard's Claire Hurley had an early chance to knot the game, but her shot at the 50:42 mark went wide right.
  • Wesleyan's Dani Milovanov sent a through ball into the box, before Lavey struck again to make it 2-0.
  • The Bears looked to take advantage of three shots in the 54th minute, but were unable to capitalize on the opportunity, as the Cardinals hung on for the shutout.
