The Patriots opened the scoring just two minutes into the contest with a goal by Scott and scored again a minute and a half later on a goal by Brandi Evans. GW got on the board with a goal by Meghan McDonough (Annapolis, MD/Annapolis) 10:18 into the first half. Toomey scored again less than a minute later for a 6-1 GMU advantage before GW's Lauren Bower (Moorestown, NJ/Moorestown) scored the Colonials' second goal on the afternoon, 20 minutes into the match. Toomey and Scott each tallied a goal to give the Patriots an 11-2 advantage at halftime.
The Patriots opened the seond half with two goals in the first five minutes before Mayer scored twice for the Colonials. The Patriots answered with four goals to close out the scoring.
