The 1-1 tie held into the half, but Missouri State freshman Holly Scherer busted up the deadlock with an unassisted goal just seven minutes into the second half. The goal was the first of Scherer's career. Lawless capped the scoring when she took a pass from Scherer and got past Miami goalkeeper Christina Heston to score uncontested in front of the net.

Central Michigan 5, Ball State 3
MUNCIE, Ind. - Junior forward Abby Roth and junior midfielder Erica Garwood each recorded a goal and an assist as the Chippewas scored a season-high five goals en route to a 5-3 win at Ball State on Saturday afternoon.
 
The Chippewas (4-6, 1-1 MAC) earned their first conference win of the season and snapped a five-match losing streak behind goals from five different players to take down Ball State (2-8, 0-2 MAC). Much of the scoring was condensed throughout the match into two brief periods midway through the first half and in the final eight minutes.
 
“Everyone got into the game and involved in the scoring, and that’s really what our team should be about,” head coach Cristy Freese said. “Every conference game is going to be tough and we’re glad to get the win because we needed it. Ball State is historically a team that scores a lot of goals, so they were tough to defend until the end.”
 
Garwood scored her third goal in the last four matches in the 45th minute to give the Chippewas a 3-2 lead.
 
Ball State’s Natalie Jardell scored her goal second of the day to tie the match up, 3-3, in the 63rd minute.
 
The match wasn’t tied long as Roth scored what was ultimately the game-winner and her second goal of the season in the 64th minute to take a 4-3 lead. Junior forward Bailey McKeon assisted on the goal, which was a pass-back to Roth off a penalty corner that found a wide-open left side of the cage.
 
Sophomore Mary Alice Moore put the match out of reach in the 69th minute with a goal off a breakaway to give CMU a 5-3 lead, and was gunning for a second goal just half a minute later, but the shot was blocked. The goal is her second of the season.
 
The Cardinals kicked off a hectic six minutes of play in the 10th minute with a shot that was saved by senior goalkeeper Anastasia Netto, but five seconds later Tori Widrick was able to score her first goal of the season to give the Cardinals an early 1-0 lead.
 
Just one minute later the Chippewas earned a penalty corner that was taken by junior forward Abby Roth and received by senior midfielder Erin Dye, who fired to the back of the cage for the equalizing goal, 1-1.
 
The goal is Dye’s team-leading sixth of the season.
 
CMU scored again just one minute later, this time on an own goal by the Cardinals, giving the Maroon and Gold a 2-1 lead. Sophomore Cayleigh Immelman was credited with the goal after firing a shot that deflected off a Ball State defender, and it was her first of the season. The goal was assisted by Garwood.
 
The lead wouldn’t last long as the Cardinals answered back in the 16th minute with a goal from Jardell from Allie White to tie the match, 2-2.
 
The Chippewas could have had an early one-goal lead, but a goal was disallowed in place of a penalty corner in the fourth minute.
 
Next up for Central Michigan is Pacific Sunday at noon in East Lansing, Mich.
