How it happened:
Bryant got the scoring started in the 17th minute when Haley Reddish sent home a rebound of a PK attempt. The rams were not down for long, however. In the 22nd minute Ari Stanton headed home a cross from Nicole Brennan to tie the game up at one goal apiece. Two minutes later Stanton was at it again, this time sending home a loose ball off a corner kick from teammate Katrin Gylfadottir. In the 25th minute freshman Madison Waldron converted her first career colligate goal, when she headed home a cross from Alex Stanton to give the Rams a 3-1 advantage. Right before half, the Rams increased their lead to 4-1 when Waldron put home her second goal of the contest. Bryant would answer late in the second half when Sarah Shucker converted a PK try in the 83rd minute of action.
