UW-Oshkosh goalkeeper Jessica Galason kept the score close by stopping six Concordia University Wisconsin shots, three in each half. She halted shots by Tomich in the 28th and 90th minute, Allison McElwee in the 23rd and 33rd minute, Anna Knueppel in the 52nd minute and Kayla Schlosser in the 54th.
