Following a Briar Cliff goal that cut the Tiger lead to 3-2, Medina scored back-to-back goals in a three-minute stretch to put Doane ahead 5-2. Tamerius picked up an assist on the first of the two goals.
Mia Juarez and Kelsie Grgurich teamed up for the sixth goal of the game. Juarez scored off a pass from Grgurich. Chelsea Reed capped the scoring off a pass from Juarez.
