GW increased its lead to 3-0 with back-to-back goals from senior co-captain Jocelyn Donohue before Robert Morris was finally able to get in the scoring column at the 13:22 mark. The home team was able to tally one more goal, but senior Camaryn Kerns fired back with a goal of her own to give GW a 4-2 edge going into the half.

After the break, the Colonials continued to apply pressure and were able to find the back of the net once again with a goal from sophomore Katie Quinn. Robert Morris responded with a goal two minutes later, but the GW defense continued to hold its ground while the attack went on a 3-0 run.
