Megan Graham hammered a goal, less than a minute later, off a pass from Brianna Axline. Livvix finished off the first half scoring in the 24th minute when she stole a ball and scored.
The second half opened and 4 minutes in Livvix achieved a hat-trick when she scored with help from Gilliam. Five minutes later, Livvix returned the favor and assisted Gilliam on her second goal. Walker scored a tally of her own in the 50th minute. Axline posted her second assist of the match. The match ended by mercy rule in the 68th minute when Meco was tripped in the penalty area and was awarded a Penalty Kick and converted.
