Hofmann paced the offense for the Golden Flashes, scoring a goal and adding four shots, including three on net. Abbie Carrico and Sabrina Binder each added assists with Carrico contributing two shots.

Six different players recorded shots for the Dukes led by redshirt freshman forward Taylor West and freshman midfielder Saskia Chelmowski with four shots each. Redshirt junior forward Rachel Wein directed three shots on goal while senior midfielder Jenna Taylor and sophomore back Rachel Palumbo registered two shots each.

Freshman goalkeeper Lena Wimmert took the loss for JMU to drop to 1-1 on the year. She made five saves and allowed just one goal in 70 minutes of action in net.
