The Dukes scored again early in the second half when Audra Matthews sent a corner kick into the crowded box. After a scuffle for the ball it was deflected, but Shaina Geisler slipped it in from close range at 51:34.
The Hawks had a few opportunities with three shots around the 60-minute mark, but DU's Brittany Findley came up with saves on all three.
