Goucher (2-0) led 3-0 entering the second quarter and built an eight-goal lead before halftime. Ballard scored twice in the second quarter to make it 9-2 at the half.

Fabien Gutierrez started the game in goal for Huntingdon and recorded eight saves and allowed nine goals in the first half. Kristian Smith had one save and allowed six goals in the second half.
