The Bruins found the back of the net in the 14th minute to take an early 1-0 lead, but the Cougars answered with a goal of their own in the 25th minute. After a long ball was sent into the box, Madie Siddoway Gates got a shot off, forcing the keeper to make a save. The ball bounced to Elise Flake, who was wide open at the top of the box and placed the ball in an open net to even the score at 1-all.

After an evenly matched second half, the Bruins put together an attack that resulted in a goal in the 89th minute to take the 2-1 win.

On the game, UCLA outshot the Cougars 16-11.
