In the 51st minute, Emory tallied an insurance goal when Natalie Klar gathered a loose ball in the goalie crease and pushed a left-footed attack into the right of the net for her third goal of the season.

Emory finished the challenge with 34 shots while the Scots took seven with Eagle keeper Haley Pratt turning away MC's pair of shots on goal. MC's offense was paced by Jenna Clothier's three shots while Taylor Frizen added a pair of attacks.
