After a water break in the 70th minute due to the high temperatures, Lema got the ball on the right flank and fired a screamer over the top of the net.
 
Fontana came closest to scoring for the Bears as she fired a 30-yard bomb with her off foot that forced Ranson into an 80th-minute diving save that she deflected onto the post, the Bears didn't get a break though as the ball bounced away.
 
Courtney Boone received a red card in the 83rd minute, forcing the Bears to play the final seven minutes down a player. The Titans recorded four shots and both of their shots on goal in the final stages after going up a player, but the Bears maintained their shutout.
