Natasha Martin (Las Vegas, Nev.) had another attempt for the Wildcats but her attempt also went wide. Atkinson finally broke through in the 24th minute putting a ball past Diaz to give the Mariners a 1-0 lead. Diaz made four more saves before the half as Marymount took a 1-0 lead into the break.

Brock sent another shot wide of target to begin the second half as Johnson & Wales continued to look for the equalizer. The Mariners added two more goals to lead 3-0 in the 63rd minute. Diaz continued to come up with saves as the Mariners kept pressing.

Arianna Flores (Goodyear, Ariz.) forced Marymount's Jessica Ramirez to make a save with 7:16 left in the contest. The Mariners held off the 'Cats to take a 4-0 win over JWU.

Brock led Johnson & Wales with two shots and Flores had one shot on goal for JWU. Diaz made 10 saves and faced 14 shots on target in the match.
