The first half was scoreless, although Emory had plenty of chances and held possession of the ball for nearly the entire 45 minutes, out-shooting BSC 13-0. Lauren Gorodetsky put Emory on the board in the 70th minute, scoring after a corner kick, and then scored again as the final minute ticked away on a free kick after a foul.

BSC managed to try for four shots in the second half, but only one of those was on-goal. Emory had 26 shots, 10 on-goal. The Eagles also took eight corner kicks to BSC's two.

Senior goalkeeper Richelle Byrd played all 90 minutes in the net for the Panthers and recorded seven saves.
