Coming out in the second half, the teams traded goals over the first seven minutes of action as Hofstra scored two and Marist scored two. Both of the Red Foxes' tallies were notched by senior Amanda Tuck (Mamaroneck, N.Y.) after receiving Larson passes.

After Hofstra built a game-high eight goal lead at 11-3 at 19:59, the Red Foxes would claw their way back into the contest with a five unanswered scores. The goal streak would begin just 16 seconds after the Pride marker when sophomore Sabrina Mattera (Wantagh, N.Y.) took a Larson pass and cut towards net and ripped a shot past Hofstra's Kelsey Gregerson.

Senior Ashley Miller (Montville, N.J.) was the next scorer for Marist as she scored her team-leading 11th goal of 2013 at 17:08.
