Tavin Hays tied the game in the 36th minute.

Mackenzie McFarland gave Texas the lead once again in the 65th minute.

After Berg gave Texas a two-goal lead, Kenady Adams made things interesting with a goal in the 90th minute.

Savannah Adams improved to 3-3-0 in net for the Longhorns. She made four saves while her counterpart Georgia Wimmer made six. Wimmer had more to deal with than Adams as the Longhorns put nine shots on goal to the Cyclones’ seven.
