Amanda Hisel (Conifer, Colo.) ended the Fort Lewis run with an unassisted goal and just 38 seconds later, junior Lexy Hamilton (Monte Vista, Colo.) put a shot in the back of the net for her 24th goal of the season. Adams State would get one more goal in the first-half, this time from Heather Jones (), to cut the score to 10-5.
