Red Hawk forward Rebecca Messer made it 2-1 when she scored from a tight angle to keep the Red Hawks alive. Ruland then completed her hat-trick, and the Red Hawks lost 3-1.

The Red Hawks then traveled to Prescott to play Embry-Riddle University. The Eagles scored nine times and the Red Hawks were held scoreless for the 9-0 loss.

The Red Hawks capped off the trip with a hard-fought game against Soka, which the Red Hawks lost 2-0.
