A pair of seven-goal outbursts by the Golden Rams put the game away early. The first came with the score tied at 1-1 apiece. Dennison scored twice, exactly one minute apart to start the run. She finished with four of her five goals in that spurt. She started the other seven-goal run late in the first half. That run continued on into the second half before Newberry could put an end to the string.

KerriAnn Barlage scored three times for Newberry. She now has 24 goals on the season.

West Chester outshot Newberry, 34-13 and forced the hosts into 17 turnovers.
