The Tigers went on to add another score at the 28:51 mark to extend the margin to 2-0. Wittenberg went on to score seven more goals in the first 30 minutes to take a commanding 9-0 lead heading into the locker rooms.
In the second half, Wittenberg continued the offense scoring four goals within the first seven minutes to extend its lead to 13-0 with 23:24 left to play. The Tigers tacked on six more scores in the period to cruise to the 19-0 final.
Hiram (3-7, 0-3 NCAC) recorded four shots in the game, but would not find the back of the net.
In goal, freshman Rebecca Greenhouse (Pittsburgh, Pa./Winchester Thurston) played all 60 minutes and made five saves in 24 shots faced.
