Senior captain Kara Ariza (Lansdowne, Pa./Penn Wood) tied up the game with a feed from Potter two minutes later, but Stanwick answered to put the Hoyas back on top. Virginia's third captain, Peggy Boutilier (Baltimore, Md./Roland Park Country), tied up the score with her conversion of a free position seven minutes into the game, and Potter put UVA ahead with a feed from Mia Mooney (Penn Valley, Pa./Shipley) 90 seconds later. Stanwick scored again two minutes later to tie the score at 3.

Samm Taylor (Springfield, Va./Robinson) converted a free ree position at the 18:38 mark, and Potter converted one of her own four minutes later. Potter scored again on a dodge just over a minute later.
Cavalier freshman Mills Hook (Lutherville, Md./St. Paul's) scored a career-high and game-higher-high and game-high four goals in the contest, with her first one coming with just under eight minutes to go in the first half off a feed from Mooney. Kelly Allenbach (West Chester, Pa./West Chester Henderson) converted a Potter pass at the 5:31 mark and Lacey Aumiller (Baltimore, Md./Notre Dame Prep) took a feed from Hook off the ensuing draw to put Virginia up 9-3 29 seconds later. Aumiller returned the favor to Hook two minutes later as she fed her classmate on the crease to close out the scoring in the first half with Virginia up 10-3.

The Hoyas scored on a free position with just over 10 minutes remaining, but Hook scored her fourth goal one minute later to close out the Cavalier scoring.
