In the first half, the Red Devils maintained most of the possession, but could not convert on the chances until Abby King sent a long hard shot from a pass by Aubrey Fleming to make it 1-0.

The Devils continued to deny SMCC any good opportunities, but once again could not convert on their chances until Aubrey Fleming sent in the second goal from a King assist.

In the second half, Grosse Ile continued to maintain the majority of the possession-controlling in the midfield. Alyson Lemerand found her first goal of the season when she scored off a King assist.

However, after a defensive let down, SMCC found the back of the Grosse Ile net when a midfielder was open and sent a long hard ball over the head of GI's keeper, putting the score at 3-1.

SMCC and Grosse Ile continued to press. Kelsey Krauss converted a pass from Aubrey Fleming to finish the game at 4-1.
