At 28:02 forward Kristina Goldstine found herself wide open from about 25 yards out after getting the ball from midfielder Sarah Bedell. Goldstine blasted a shot into the left corner of the goal for a 2-0 UT-Martin lead.

Forward Katie Jackson made it 4-0 at 80:29 when she found the net with a shot from about 10 yards out off of a breakaway.
