Patriots junior Leah Pace scored the first of her two goals midway through the opening half off of a through ball from senior Devin Hogan. The Patriots took a 1 -0 lead into the half in a very even, hard fought half.
The second half saw Pace score early off of a feed from sophomore Olivia DiFonso, who pushed a through pass to Pace on a run to the goal. Later, Hogan broke down the wing and crossed a ball for her second assist to charging sophomore Jordan Clarke.
Immediately, Eagles freshman Leah Hardin answered by gathering a ball from sophomore Samara Miller and sliding it to the far post.
