Haley Gasser assisted on Grindle's second goal, while the Express took an 8-0 lead into halftime.
In the second half, Haley Kreger produced the only two Express goals, with them coming at the 65:37 and 78:01 marks. On the second one, Groll crossed the ball from right to left before Kreger headed it. The initial shot was saved, but Kreger followed it up with another header for the goal.
Both of Kreger's goals were unassisted.
Erika Brinkman started in goal for the Express and played most of the first half before being replaced by Megan Soncrant, who played until the 85th minute. Kreger spent the last five minutes in goal. It was the second appearance in goal this year for Soncrant, while it was Kreger's first appearance.
Soncrant made the only save of the game, on the only shot on goal for Lorain County.
