The score remained tied as the teams headed into halftime.

The game remained tied until the 58th minute when Tiffany Dimaculangan gave Westmont the lead with her goal as she scored from eight-yards out in the middle after beating an NU defender. Mallory Mitchell scored her second goal of the game at 62:11 as she scored from the right touch line, five-yards out putting the Warriors up 3-1. Two minutes later, it was Christine Adams putting the capper on the game with her three-yard header from Sophie Fuller at the 64:42 mark.
