Montoya netted two goals in the first half at 20:20 and 36:08, respectively, while Howes added a tally at the 43:00 mark to close out a three-goal opening stanza for Wheaton.

In the second half, Howes redirected a long cross from Hermantin into the far corner of the goal for her fourth tally of the year. Montoya completed the hat-trick at 72:13 with a strike off of a rebound after Mount Holyoke stopped senior Lauren Corigliano’s point-blank shot in the box.
