Chelsea-Ann Patry gave Wellesley a chance to take the lead on a break away in the early minutes of the first half, but her shot went wide. Both teams remained scoreless for the remainder of the half.

Price’s goal came just six minutes into the second half on a long free kick. This proved to be the game winner as a strong Springfield defense held off the Wellesley attack.
