More scoring chances presented itself as the warriors were relentless. WMC would net their second goal after link play with the Betten sisters to find Brooklyn Watts (So.) with 25 on the clock. Sydney would net another goal, another chipped shot over the keeper, from a pass from Ally Oppenhuizen (Jr.). The first half scoring would conclude with Sydney finding Brooklyn for a 1 on 1 with the keeper.
Second half, the warriors appeared to succumb to the newfound intensity from the chippewas and struggled to dominate the half as they did before. Sydney, again, would find herself with a great left-foot strike that skimmed off the crossbar and out in the first 30 seconds. From there, a few chances were created from the warriors but appeared difficult with not being able to control possession cleanly. With 14 minutes left in the half, Hallie Lindale (Fr.) would find Sydney Betten for another chipped shot over the keeper to finish the scoring on the night.
