In the second half, the game remained a one-score game through the 83rd minute. Peters added her second goal of the evening in the 84th minute, giving the senior nine goals for the season. 

Maggie Kortis scored her first goal of the season in the 88th minute, sealing the 3-0 win for the Cavaliers.

Walsh, as the number two seed, will host the Kentucky Wesleyan Panthers on Saturday (Nov. 9) at 12 PM in a Great Midwest Quarterfinal matchup.
