The scoreboard lit up one minute into the match as inside center Fina Toetu’u went on the first of several exciting runs. A slipped tackle on the sideline saw wing Angelina Lomu score the first of her three tries. Prop Catie Benson accounted for the following two tries, capitalizing on breakaways from No. 8 Jennifer Sever and fullback Cameo Motley. Benson later scored a breakaway try of her own, outpacing the pursuing defenders for close to 70 meters. Wisconsin got on the board approximately 15 minutes in when a missed switch deep in Life West’s end...
