The loss drops the Lyons to 9-4 on the season and 1-3 in conference action, while the Pride improve to 6-3-2 and 2-1-2 in the NEWMAC.

Wheaton kept Springfield off the board in the opening half, but could not stop the Pride in the second. A foul outside the box in the 31st minute led to a free-kick, which made its way off the cross bar and into goal. Springfield netted its final two goals in the final twenty minutes of the game.
