Though Mercy carried the play from the outset, they were unable to break through until the final minutes of the first half. A late STAC turnover helped the Mavericks get on the board as Claudia McKail scored her first of the season at 36:30. With just under three minutes left in the half, Kaitlyn Dunning converted a long cross from in close to add an insurance marker before halftime. After being outshot by a 9-0 margin through 45 minutes, STAC did generate some offense in the second half but were unable to cut into the deficit as Juliana Conforti closed out the scoring at 86:11.
