Both teams battled for possession on a hot Wednesday afternoon at Keuka College. Neither team was able to build much of an offensive attack. Oswego State outshot Keuka 5-2 in the half and had a 3-1 advantage in corners. Their final corner of the half produced a goal in the 33rd minute to give the Lakers a 1-0 lead at the half.

Oswego added a pair of goals in the opening minute before the Wolves got on the board. In the 48th minute, Taylor Lessard had the ball at the top of the circle. She hit it into Nicole Wilson on the right post who centered it to Alysa Maddaleno for the goal. Oswego took the ball and drove down the field to quickly answer, making it 4-1, however the Wolves had a response of their own. Rielly Albee had the ball right of goal. She found Nicole Wilson in front. The freshman scored her third of the season for the Wolves, making it a 4-2 game in favor of Oswego.
