A goal by Courtney Lawrence made the score 4-0 before Lincoln Christian scored to make the score 4-1 at halftime.

In the second half, Taylor completed the hat trick in the 52nd minute her fourth goal of the match 10 minutes later.

Dani Pearce, Breanna Thomas, Kate Arthur, Traci Roa, Kaylie Weideman, and Christina Bowman added single goals.

Greenville posted 51 shots in the match.
