The score remained 3-0 at halftime.

The drive was not over though, as the ball went back to Stearns, where she passed it closely to sophomore Jewell Gentry-Mickelson whon took the shot bringing the score to 4-0.

Twenty-five minutes later, senior Megan Gibson assisted sophomore Sydney Ritten for the fifth and final goal of the night, sealing the Rams fate and bring the final score to 5-0 and the Braves record to 11-6-1.
