How it Happened
Rhode Island jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead as Amanda Schafer took a shot - which was saved by George Mason's Morgan Symmers - just 44 seconds into the game. Rebecca D'Anna was there to collect the rebound and fire a shot into the lower left corner for the early 1-0 advantage.

The Patriots evened the score 10 minutes later however, when Emma Van Der Vorst netted a free kick from 20 yards out. Shannon Lee then put Mason up for good in the 22nd minute when she headed in a Rebecca Callison free kick.

Mason later tacked on three more goals in a 10-minute span in the second half to put the game out of reach.
