The Diplomats pushed the lead back to three goals when Grace Saliba scored off an Ali Kelly assist with 16:58 on the clock, but Washington answered with a goal by junior attacker Caroline Lovett (Lancaster, Pa./Penn Manor) at 13:29. Vincent then cut the lead to one with a free-position goal with 12:22 remaining before halftime. The Shorewomen evened the score at 5-5 on a free-position goal by Vincent with 6:16 on the clock and took the lead on a goal by Hubley with 2:19 to play before the intermission.

Washington freshman midfielder Cara Pascarella (Dix Hills, N.Y./Half Hollows Hills East) cut the margin back to two goals when she scored off an assist from Vincent with 12:21 remaining, but Kimberly Abruzzo countered with a free-position goal with 9:59 remaining.
