Jacly McClean (26) scored first Friday as the Kickapoo Chiefs surprised the Red Knights had maintained a significant portion of the possession up to that point and saw Carolyn Kutchback ring a shot off the cross bar early. The Incarnate Word Red Knights took an even greater sense of interest in the match at that point and scored a pair of goals before the end of the half to take a 2-1 lead at halftime.

The first was scored by Kutchback from a direct kick after a foul at the top of the box. A little touch and a shot to the lower left corner found space as the Chiefs wall failed their goalkeeper. Then in the final minute junior Emily Groark slid a ball to the left to Olivia Layton who hammered a shot into the roof of the net from 8 yards out.
Junior Abby Tremain finished the scoring midway through the second half as IWA opened the #STLclassic with a win.
