GGC's Mackenzie Bailey was able to score 76 seconds into the game to give the Grizzlies a quick lead, but Shorter (5-12-1) was able to respond with two goals at the end of the first half.

Helena Farinha scored in the 32nd minute to equalize, while Brandi Greenwald scored in the 37th minute to give Shorter the lead for good. Both goals went unassisted.

The Lady Hawks held an 18-9 advantage on shots. The Lady Hawks forced Grizzlies keeper Mo Gutierrez into six saves.

Katie Stachula made the start for the final time this season in goal, adding five saves to her season total. She was able to record 87 saves on the season, which is second best in school history for a single season behind Taylor Hays, who recorded 105 saves in 2011.
