From Pittsburgh Panthers Athletics reports
Kentucky struck first, as Tanya Samarzich found the back of the net in the 25th minute, controlling the ball off of a bounce, turning and spinning to the far corner.
Neither team was able to score in the second period as the Wildcats remained on top 1-0.
The Wildcats extended their lead in the 71st minute, as a goal from Foster Ignoffo would make it 2-0 in favor of the home team. That score would hold for the remainder of the contest, as Kentucky took the 2-0 decision.
