The Eagles got on the scoreboard in the 14th minute when Julia Baca took a cross from Nikole Blackwell and beat the keeper to the far post for a 1-0 lead.

In the 38th minute, Logan Hatfield got a foot on the ball just in front of the Sweet Briar keeper and the ball rolled into the goal for a 3-0 Bridgewater lead.
