After Zariah Durham doubled the Eagle lead to 2-0 with her score at the 12:37 mark, Emily Smith put the Senators on the board with 11:10 left in the first quarter. That was the last Davis & Elkins score for nearly 28 minutes of play as the Eagles held the Senators without another goal until the 8:49 mark of the third quarter.

Embry-Riddle dominated the first period 10-1 and held the Senators without a shot in the second period to own a 14-1 lead at the half.
