Game highlights
* Colby used some solid teamwork and passing on the opening goal at 21:16 of the contest. Grace Franklin had a long pass to Olivia Greif, who took a few dribbles to elude a defender. Greif had a perfect pass to Martin cutting across the penalty box for the left-footed score.
 
* The Mules' second goal started off a corner kick by Brozdowski. The ball was cleared away and went directly back to Brozdowski, who quickly centered the ball. Ally Ingraham was coming across the goal area and had a nice flick header for the score with just 3:50 left to halftime.
 
* The Beavers scored with 22 minutes remaining on a nice transition from defense to offense. A UMF defender had a tackle to change the possession and the Beavers used two nice passes to get the ball to McKenna Brodeur, who dribbled nearly 20 yards while splitting two defenders for the score.
 
* The Mules had some nice transition of their own on the third goal by Brozdowski with three minutes to play. Colby started deep in their own end, but used some crisp passing to get the ball quickly up the field. Brozdowski beat a defender and her left-footed shot found the left-hand corner of the goal.
