The Jayhawks opened the scoring when Rantala accepted a pass from Schroeder and put the ball in the back of the net in the eighth minute. Six minutes later Hoogveld scored off another Schroeder assist. The Jayhawks led 2-1 at halftime.
Rantala scored next at 70:01 off a Rachel Gilfillan assist. Hoogveld added her second goal at 77:12 on a double assist from Schroeder and freshman Amy Geha.
