The Bantams' only opportunity of the half came with nine to play a strike from outside the box by junior back Heather Lyhne (Wethersfield, Conn.) was saved by Williams first-year goalie Hannah Van Wetter.
Coming out of the half, the Bantams were the first to get a shot. Just over five minutes into the half, the Bantams had a free kick from the right side of the field.

The Bantams fired at the net, but Kristine Nakada recovered for the Ephs to head the ball away from net and keep the Ephs up 1-0. The Ephs continued to have opportunities in the half as well. Their best opportunity came with 7:48 to play when Sachi Siegelman served a long ball into the red side of the box. Eisenhart got a foot on the ball, but Trinity goalie Lily Pepper dove and got a fist on the ball to stop it from going in. Pepper totaled eight saves in a valiant losing effort for the Bantams.
