- Alex Reed set up Carrow on her first goal in the 61st minute, before Megan Niswonger tallied her second assist of the day, finding Carrow to mark the final Wittenberg goal just over a minute later.
- Donnelly got the scoring started in the second half, capitalizing on the first Niswonger assist to give Wittenberg the 5-0 lead coming out of the intermission.
- Wittenberg allowed just two Oberlin shots on the afternoon with both coming in the second half.
