Dayna Staffiere found the back of the net off a pass from Ross-Dyjak to give the Huskies their final margin of victory.
In the second half, the Beavers outshot the Huskies 15-4 and 29-14 for the game, but were unable to get by sophomore keeper Taylor Canastra who turned away 10 shots on the night, to get the win.
UMF keeper Mikayla Cameron (Monmouth, Maine/Monmouth) made three stops in her first collegiate start.
