Henn quickly put Hopkins on the board to start the second, when she scored her second of the day just 2:09 in. Miller found the cage for the second time in the game, scoring just three minutes after Henn's strike, making it a 6-0 game. Just over a minute later, Miller completed her second hat trick of the season, scoring off an assist from sophomore Brittany Bland (Littleton, CO/Colorado Academy).
Junior Leah Horton (Wayne, PA/Upper Merion Area) scored her fifth of the season just 14 seconds later and Hopkins held an 8-0 lead. Freshman Sarah Jacobs (Denver, CO/Kent Denver Englewood) scored her first career goal with just over 13 minutes to play to make the score 9-0.
