The two teams played a scoreless first half before Siena put three goals on the scoreboard early in the second stanza. Junior Erin DeMatteo (Saratoga, NY) broke the scoreless tie as she broke through the defense off the kickoff and netted her sixth goal of the year at the 45:21 mark. Freshman Kristen Turner (Wappingers Falls, NY) picked up the assist. A little over two minutes later, Dematteo returned the favor, finding Turner on a give and go play. Turner's sixth goal of the year came at the 47:53 mark. Siena's final goal of the afternoon came on Alicia Lackey's (Niskayuna, NY) first collegiate goal at 53:33. Lackey headed in a DeMatteo corner kick past Iona netminder Ticiana DiCarlo (Westbury, NY).

Siena's Krista Nordmark (South Winsdor, CT) earned the win playing 81:25 and stopping all six shots. Carey Winkler (Sand Lake, NY) relieved Nordmark for the final 10 minutes of the game.
