The Seahawks scored at 3:23 giving them an early lead, but UNB came back in the first half at 39:42 with a goal by Ford.
"[It] was a mistake on their part, and I just kinda got a toe on it and beat the keeper," she said.
The women kept took another goal early into the second half, in the 47 minute, giving UNB a 2-1 lead, which they would keep for the rest of the game.
Ford scored the second goal off a free kick from mid-fielder Lucy Parkin and walked the ball into the net.
"The second [goal] was a free kick from Lucy, so just kind of a hassle and a mix-up and I got a lucky touch."
Loving to run around and to score goals kept her in the sport.
Ford said the win over the Seahawks was a good sign for the team and for the rest of the season.
"I think this is kind of the turning point for us, kinda half way through the season."
