Whitney Smith scored six goals for the Majors, who erased 2-0 and 3-1 Lynx leads in the first half with a four-goal string midway through the half. The two teams traded goals over a seven-minute stretch before Millsaps closed the half with two goals in the final two minutes of the half. Smith beat the buzzer, scoring her fifth goal of the first half with just three seconds remaining. The Majors led 9-6 at the half.
The Lynx would rally, scoring four straight goals to start the second to lead 10-9. Smith and Katie Iskra scored to knot the game at 10 and 11 as the teams see-sawed back and forth in the second half, setting up the last-minute heroics.
