A little over three minutes later, sophomore Sonny Watrous (Albuquerque, N.M.) scored her seventh goal on the season at 4:31. Watrous evened up the score 1-1, with an unassisted goal past Brown's netminder Stacey Silverman.

With 41 seconds remaining, Providence held a 6x4 power play advantage when they pulled goalkeeper Amy Thomas (Austin, Texas). The Bears' defense held strong and ended the game, 2-1.
