Rachel Corboz added the insurance goal with her 10th goal of the year in the 52nd minute after settling a rebound.

The win was the Hoyas' first in three trips to the final after losses in 2012 and 2014. They improved to 16-2-3 overall, tying the school record for wins in a season
 
"I'm happy for this team," Hoya coach Dave Nolan said afterward. "They're a great bunch of kids. I'm blessed. We've had so many great teams over the years and so many wonderful kids, but this group, last year and this year, have been a lot of fun. They just come every day and work hard. They just don't give you an ounce of concern."
