Southern Utah kept up the pressure into the second half until Cook broke through the UND defense to score her second goal of the season. The freshman forward used a charging header to redirect a cross from Kristy Hendrickson into the back of the net to put the T-Birds out in front 1-0 in the seventieth minute.

The Thunderbirds continued to press the attack and seven minutes later Moreno was able to find the back of the net for her first career goal. The freshman defender collected a loose ball in the top right corner of the box and beat the goalkeeper with a shot to put her team up by a count of 2-0.

SUU wasn't done yet as Brinkman and Cook connected for a third Thunderbird goal in the match's final minute. The score moved Brinkman into a tie with Shaley Ipson Allen for first place in program history with 18 career goals and was her team-leading fourth of the season.

Charly Booth made six saves in the game to post her first shutout of the season and freshman Madison Wood led SUU with four shots. As a team the Thunderbirds held a 17-10 advantage in the shot column and took 12 corner kicks, the second-highest total in program history.
