Madison Horner scored back-to-back goals to start the scoring for Trinity. Her first was a chip shot over the keeper after Alex Walsh's initial effort was saved. The second was less than 10 minutes of game time later on a rocket from just outside the box to make it a 2-0 game.

The final goal of the game came in the 62nd minute, as first-years Nyah Shepherd and Kristen Coniglione combined for a score. Shepherd lofted a ball into the box that drew out the East Texas Baptist goalie, and Coniglione chipped it over her head for the goal.
