The second period opened with Regis controlling the ball in their offensive end. Freshman Adena Joseph (Stoughton, Mass.) found a seam and broke through the Wildcat defense but was stonewalled by Wildcat keeper Rhodes to keep the score at 0-0.

The Pride would get on the board halfway through the second period when Michelle Sirois (Easton, Mass.) would direct a crisp pass through the Wildcat defense to find an open Kristen Abreu (Woburn, Mass.) who placed the ball bottom right to make the score 1-0 in favor of the Pride. 

The Pride tallied the second goal of the game when Sirois would direct another pass to Abreu who finished on the crease to make the score 2-0. The Pride continued to possess the ball in its offensive end during the final minutes of the game and grabbed the win with final score being 2-0.
