After a scoreless first half, Saint Martin ’s (4-8-0, 3-5-0), which won for the first time in four home games, took a 1-0 lead in the 62nd minute. Jenny Baker scored her sixth goal of the season as Webb earned an assist.

Western and Saint Martin ’s each had 15 shots and the Vikings had an 8-5 advantage on corner kicks.
