With possession, the Mustangs, 10-3 overall, scored 13 straight goals, six before Tech tried to slow things down with a timeout. The break in action seemed to work for a short while, but CMW then scored five goals in seven minutes to close the half.

Brooke Williams added three goals, while Katie Gallagher scored twice. Sarah Piazza, Alyssa Austen and Lauren O'Mara had a goal each.

Heather McKee made one save in the CMW goal, while Juliet Lloyd made seven saves and Bryana Wyatt made one save in the Tech nets.
"They're a tough team and I felt like the second half, you know 4-1, we really came out a lot stronger," Tech coach Emma Little said. "It's hard on the girls mentally coming in, going from a undefeated division to play with these upper division schools, but I thought they did really well, especially in the second half and they supported each other really well and I'm really proud of them."
