UNCG took its lead eight minutes into the second half. Nicole Souply took a pass from Jordin Mosley at the top of the box and quickly moved it to a streaking Kaley Tucker in the right side of the box, who put a shot inside the left side of the post.
The Spartans doubled their lead in the 67th minute. Ashley Avelino headed down a corner kick by Gabi Santora in the right side of the box, and Maddy Gilhool was able to nudge the ball past a few defenders and the goalkeeper from a few yards out for her first collegiate goal.
Campbell cut its deficit in the 84th minute on a shot from middle of the midfield that was able to just bend inside the left corner of the net. The tying goal came three minutes later. After a defensive miscue, the Camels put the ball into an empty net from a few yards out.
