The Spartans did not wait long to strike again, as Lexus Rose gave the Spartans a 2-0 lead just three minutes after Nicholson’s goal as she found the back of the net after a rebound off of the Fighting Scots goalie.

After being 2-1 for half of the second half, Kyleigh McLaughlin scored on a breakaway which gave the Spartans a 3-1 lead that they would not relinquish. Dubuque goal keeper, Megan Moll, saved three Fighting Scots shots.
