In game two, Villanova scored nine goals before Strein recorded her second goal of the evening, ending the Wildcat run. After five more goals by Villanova, Strein went on to put away one more tally and Allen added another goal of her own, while holding the Wildcats scoreless, but it was not nearly enough as Villanova walked away with the 15-3 victory.
