The first goal scored by Harvard during the second period came at 7:19 from senior Kaitlin Spurling. Riley made the initial save right before Spurling put in the rebound off the back door. Nineteen seconds later Dempsey added on a goal for the Crimson at 7:38 of the second period.
Dempsey notched her second of goal of the game at 9:59 of the second period, when she fired a puck low five-hole on Riley. Before the conclusion of the period freshman Miye D'Oench tallied her third goal of the season, when she beat the Friar defense wide before firing the puck on net.
