The Lobos (8-1) cashed in three goals in a span of less than 14 minutes in the second half to grab a 3-0 lead. Karlee Maes netted the first goal on Maly’s assist in the 53rd minute, and Maly made it 2-0 less than two minutes later on an assist from Madi Hirschman.
Maly scored again in the 67th minute with Maes getting the assist. Wyoming (2-6) got a goal by Alyssa Bedard.
