The Enumclaw offense broke loose in the second quarter, with Stucker and Ballard scoring two goals each, and Kelsey Sonneson scoring one, while Stadium managed to slip one past Hornet goalkeeper Megan Lesmeister. Enumclaw led 7-1 at halftime.

The Hornets increased their lead in the third quarter, outscoring the visiting Tigers 4-3, to take an 11-4 advantage into the final period, and finished the game with goals by Sonneson, Ballard, and newcomer Bella Davenport in the fourth quarter to seal the win.

Senior Ali Ballard led all scorers with five goals, Erin Stucker scored four, Sonneson added three, and Alina VanRuff and Bella Davenport each scored a goal for the Hornets.
