Tori Smith, Breanna McCarter and Amber Tripp lead the Wolverines in shots with three each, and DeWaal, Smith and Tripp with two shots on goal for the night. Brooklyn Nielsen defended the box both half’s securing five saves for the night.
During the 81′ minute Laken Flinders was fouled by a CSUB defender, this would give UVU the opportunity to get the leading shot from off the foot of DeWall who recorded her ninth goal of the season, giving the Wolverines the victory.
