Claudia Pineda scored the lone Lynx goal in the second half when she picked up the ball at the top of the box and blasted it into the upper corner.

Illinois Central dominated the first half and built a 4-0 lead. ICC scored its first goal at the 18th minute, when Knobloch slipped a ball past LC goalie Courtney Baumann. Knobloch scored two more first-half goals before Mandy Soklowske scored the fourth of the half.

ICC opened the second half with goals by Driscoll and Soklowske before LC got on the board.

"I felt that we played with heart and showed toughness, but we must start games with the intensity we finished this one with," said Lincoln College coach Aaron Paskvan. "We will learn from this game and hope for better things Thursday."

Chris Rivera of the Lincoln team sustained a knee injury with 25 minutes left in the first half and was unable to return.
