Sarah Conner put the Eagles on the board in the 18th minute when she took a through ball from Melanie Waters and lofted a shot toward the goal from 25 yards out. The shot glanced off the keeper's hand and into the net, giving the Eagles a 1-0 lead.

Two minutes later Julia Baca took a through ball from Michelle Viegas and scored from 15 yards out for a 2-0 Eagles lead. Baca has now scored a goal in four straight contests.

At the 27:27 mark, Waters centered a pass into the box for Mari Marotta and her shot glanced off the near post and into the back of the goal, making the score 3-0.

A minute later, Anna Theisen completed the first half scoring with a goal from straightaway, just inside of the box for a 4-0 Eagles lead.

The Eagles scored early in the second half when Viegas beat the keeper on a free kick from 30 yards out, giving Bridgewater a 5-0 lead.

Waters scored in the 57th minute with a shot to the near post, giving Bridgewater a 6-0 lead. Theisen recorded the assist on the play.

Baca finished off the scoring in the 78th minute with her second goal of the game for the final 7-0 margin.
