The girls took the field first. At halftime the score remained 0-0. Then, at the 33 and 31 minutes left marks in the second half, Kennedy scored twice, giving them a 2-0 advantage. Those were the only two scores of the game, and Kennedy defeated West 2-0. The team fell to a 3-3 record.

After halftime, they scored once more with 21 minutes left in the game. The five goals were the only scores of the game as West shut out Kennedy 5-0. The team advanced their record to 6-0 this season.
