How It Happened
- Ithaca's Amanda Schell scored the lone goal of the first half, scoring from the center of the arc on a shot that was partially deflected by Washington goalkeeper Sadie Robertson but still found the back of the cage with 25:16 remaining in the period.
- The Bombers put all four of the first-half shots on cage, while the Shorewomen were on target with four of their 10 in the period. Jordan Mitchell got off the final shot of the half for the Shorewomen with 3:13 on the clock, but it was stopped by Ithaca goalkeeper Katie Lass.

- Miller put the Shorewomen on the board with 22:10 left in the game when she scored off a direct penalty corner. Allison Remenapp inserted the ball off the end line to Elizabeth Davis, acting as the stick-stop. Miller then fired in the goal to slice the lead in half.
- Caitlin O'Brien got the goal back for the Bombers, upping the lead to 3-1 off a penalty corner feed from Lauren Delia with 11:38 remaining.
