Sophomore Jamie McCarrell (Jackson, Mich./Jackson) scored her first of the season as she took advantage of a miscommunication between a Bulldogs defender and their goalie at 15:58. However, Adrian struck back just 29 seconds later to go up 3-1.

The Bulldogs would add goals at 22:43 and 33:32 to take a 5-1 lead at the half. Adrian out-shot the Thunder 14-3 in the first half with all three Trine shots coming off the foot of McCarrell.

The second half saw the Thunder close the shot gap as Adrian held just a 9-6 advantage, but only one Trine shot came on net.
