Both teams were deadlocked until Emporia State broke through in the 27th minute. ESU’s Ashlynn Lakin netted a header off a corner kick to give the Hornets the early 1-0 lead. Emporia State doubled its lead late in the second half with an insurance goal from MacKenzie Dimarco with less than 15 mintues remaining.
