HOW IT HAPPENED

- In the seventh minute, Salisbury kept the pressure on Catholic with a penalty corner. Julia Frankis' initial shot was saved by the keeper then the rebound was saved by Catholic's Grace Jung before Jamison scooted the ball over to Reardon in front of the cage to double the SU advantage in the first quarter.
- Salisbury put away two goals in the third quarter to extend its advantage to 4-0. Catholic failed to clear the ball on a penalty corner.

Less than five minutes later, a penalty corner play was finished by Mack Dinopoulos on assists by Maci Long and Emma Jeffries.
