Bantam senior attacker Hadley Duncan scored the game’s first goal from senior attacker Haley Thompson 1:53 after the opening draw, and senior tri-captain midfielder Megan Leonhard tallied three times to highlight the 6-0 Trinity run that started the game.

After a goal by Dorsey from Nielsen 30 second after halftime, junior attacker Shea Kusiak scored on a free position for the Bantams to ignite a 5-0 run that out the game out of reach.
