Vera Freda scored the opening goal on Tuesday 1:14 into the game to give the Wolves a 1-0 lead. However Houghton College went on a run and scored eight unanswered, keeping Keuka off the scoreboard for the rest of the half. The Highlanders led 8-1 at halftime. The run for Houghton continued as the Highlanders scored the first six goals of the second half. Keuka got back on the board halfway through the second as Kendall Neuberger set up Morgan Bruno for the goal. Minutes later, the same combination worked for Keuka. Neuberger later scored a goal herself, but it was not enough as Houghton added an insurance goal for the 15-4 victory.
