Long Beach State took a 3-1 lead in the first period, as Chelsea Parks and Coriann Snyder scored back-to-back goals to put the 49ers in front by two after Julia Garyfallou opened the scoring. Jenny Jamison scored her first of three goals in the closing minutes of the first period, and then the Matadors evened the score in the second quarter as the teams went into the break tied at 5-5.
Jamison put the Matadors on top 6-5 with the first goal in the second half, and while the 49ers scored next to even the score, Cal State Northridge scored two more goals in the third quarter and held the lead the rest of the way.
