With the victory DePauw improved to 6-3 overall and 5-0 in the NCAC, while the Quakers dropped to 2-6 on the season and 0-5 in NCAC play.

The Tigers started their offensive blaze just three minutes into the contest when Addie Ball smashed home her first goal.  Ball’s goal would prove to be the game-winner.  DePauw would go on to knock in six more goals in the half, the most Tiger goals in a half since 1999.

Both Paige Henry and Ball knocked in two first-half goals, while Laynie Thomas, Grace Goodbarn, and Micheline Figel joined in on the scoring frenzy.  Grace Fisher, Natalie Abbott, and Goodbarn all added first-half assists.
