Pond then made her mark on the game when Davis became provider again in the 23rd minute when she found Pond who unleashed an unstoppable left footed volley into the back of the net from 25 yards out.
Davis got her 3rd and final assist after she made a mazy run from the right flank again and squared the ball to defender Alex Sandlin at the near post to slot the ball home.
Brookhaven College ended their scoring in 80th minute when Martinez turned from goal scorer to provider when she played a ball from the left wing that found unmarked midfielder, Salma Kline, who made no mistake with an easy tap in.
