The Knights' junior keeper Mackenzie Cox (Alpine, Utah/Lone Peak) stopped seven Generals' shots the rest of the half. 

At the 66:21 mark in the second half, junior forward KJ Lancaster (Atlanta, Ga./Atlanta International) added the insurance goal off a Camille LeJeune (Lafayette, La./Episcopal School of Acadiana) assist and gave W&L its final 2-0 score.

The Generals held an advantage over the Knights in both total shots and corner kicks, earning a 22-5 lead in shots and an 8-0 edge in corner kicks. 

In goal for the Blue and White was sophomore Addie Healy (Waterford, Va./Woodgrove), who registered two saves and no goals-against while spending 90:00 in the game.

Cox collected 10 total saves and two goals-against while protecting the net the entire game for the Knights.
