Gina Purpura scored the first goal of the second half for the Saints, but the Bobcats rolled off the final 10 goals of the contest. Paquette recorded three of those markers, while Lauren Eagan and Jennifer Larson each contributed a pair of tallies. Willis, Kate Danowski and Smallman also chipped in one goal in the second half.
