Madison Cowman and Taylor Eisenberg each scored a goal to put Quincy up 2-0less than 15 minutes into the match, and Kaleigh Kuhlman scored on low rocket shots in the 30th and 32nd minutes. Kayla Bunch rounded out the scoring by finishing a corner kick cross from Madison Bruce in the 77th minute. Bunch assisted two of the first-half goals.

Had it not been for a couple diving saves from Rocky senior goalie Maggie Williams, Quincy (5-1, 2-0 Big 6) would hav escored a couple more times in the second half.

"She did a nice job," Quincy coach Travis Dinkheller said of Williams. "Even late in the game, we had several (chances) from the wing that she came out and stymied. She¹s a nice goalkeeper. She does a good job."
