Hammer had three goals in the contest. Several Grizzlies aided in the scoring effort. Kendra Cheda led the Grizzlies with four goals in the contest. Qiana Barfield also netted two goals. Jessica Hammer, Kates Raymond, and Aislinn Stace each also contributed a goal.
Goalie Danica Kristiansen recorded the win for Adams State, making nine saves during the game.

The Grizzlies will finish out their season on the road this weekend with contests against Fort Lewis and Mesa.
