Just over five minutes into the second half at 50:03, freshman forward Megan Geary (Campbell Hall, N.Y.) put DC on the board and cut the GCU lead to 2-1.

The Lions answered with three straight goals to take a 5-1 lead over Dominican. Michaella Paradiso and Marin Kulenguski scored back to back goals and Heather Arbachesky followed for her second goal of the game for the 5-1 lead.
