The match saw moments of tension as Durham had a chance on the counter-attack in the 60th minute, but a crucial clearance off the line onto the post and out by Stuart denied them their 4th goal.

In the 78th minute, Housley had to leave the field due to an injury, and Snelson came on as her replacement. The second half witnessed a few injury delays, with Clarke going down after a collision with the Durham striker in the 85th minute.
