Botafogo got on the scoreboard early when Gianna Dal Pozzo played a perfect through-ball to Zoe Swift who calmly tucked it away. Meegan Johnston made it 2-0 around the 30-minute mark, and Zoe Swift made it 3-0 just before the half from Molly Piech and Jillian Van Kampen. Ashley Handwork sealed the win with her header off a Hope D’Addario corner kick to make it 4-0 early into the 2nd half. NSA managed to pull one back with two minutes to go in the game.
