Gustavus got the first goal at 5:15 of the first period on a shot by from Melissa Doyle. However, River Falls got the equalizer late in the first when Judy Daleiden deflected it in at 17:41.

Leah Johnson got what proved to be the game-winner at 11:01 of the second with her fourth goal of the season

Both goaltenders were strong, as Gustavus’ Lindsey Hibbard stopped 21 shots and Gillian McDonald made 22 saves.
