  • Wittenberg found the back once more before the intermission, as Megan Niswonger found Veronica Carrow on the feed for her second goal of the season.
  • Audrey Coler scored her third goal in two games and sixth of the season, putting back the deflected shot in the second half for the final Wittenberg goal of the game.


  • Wittenberg collected 25 shots on the afternoon compared to Oberlin's one.
  • The Tigers took 12 penalty corners, while allowing the Yeowomen to take just one open look.
