Providing her team with life in the closing minutes, Brynn Colvin scored from Melanie Brannon in the 84th to make it a 2-1 game, but West Georgia would hold UAH without a shot the rest of the way to hang on for the win.
 
Colvin extends her team lead in goals to six on the season, while Brannon tallies her second point.
