Liberty would respond quickly to the Hokie goal when Emily Shubin booted a shot from 25-yards out that beat Tech goalkeeper Katie Hancock. The goal was unassisted and came at the 54:59 mark. The Flames would go on to take the match in overtime when Woodrow scored. The winning goal came at the 99:12 mark and was assisted by Jenny Davis.
