UNLV opened up the scoring of the match at 18:08 as MF Cristyn Enea was able to score off the post and into the net.

“We had a little bad luck with their goal,” said Coach Smith. “It was an unfortunate bounce off the post and the ball hit our goal keeper (Elise Matthews) in the back and rolled in.”
