The Red Devils finished strong three goals in the final 20 minutes. Scott scored off an assist from first-year Amanda Fruman (Owings Mills, Md./Garrison Forest) and Alana Platukus (Wilkes-Barre, Pa./Pittston Area) tipped in a shot off the stick of Hannah Spiri (Morgantown, Pa./Twin Valley) to stretch the lead to 5-1.

Senior Kaity Kalady (Downingtown, Pa./Downingtown East) closed out the scoring with three minutes to play, scoring off a cross from Bridget Fontaine (Longmeadow, Mass./Longmeadow) for the final of 6-1.
