UNI scored in the fifth minute when freshman Sarah McHugh hit a service following a Drake foul. McHugh's pass found senior Kiki McClellan in the box and the senior buried the shot in the left side of the net for the score.
Just after the score Drake capitalized on a Panther miscue. UNI kicked the ball off of their own player and the ball ended up in the back of the net, knotting the score at one. The game would remain at 1-1 after 110 minutes of play.
