The junior goalkeeper registered nine saves on the night. Furman finally broke through against the ETSU net minder midway through the second half. Morrison scored in the 60th minute of play off of an Alice Martin assist. Furman struck again just eight minutes later as Melissa Vogel clinched the victory. Morrison picked up the assist.
