The Polar Bears pressured through the opening minutes of play, finally breaking through 9:44 into the first half. Mettler Growney crossed a ball from high on the right side, through traffic, to Kimmy Ganong on the opposite post. Ganong slapped in the feed to take the 1-0 lead.

Three minutes into the second half, Kara Finnerty scored on a solo effort in the circle. Finnerty weaved through several UMF defenders before finding the back of the cage with a close-range shot.
