Sage (1-2) controlled the play early against Keuka. They earned a corner in the opening minutes of the game and had a shot ring off of the crossbar, but bounced away. Minutes later, Kosinski was called up for a couple key saves. Keuka's offense was able to get some shots, but the Gators held a 13-5 advantage in shots. In the 41stminute, Sage had another attempt, but the ball caromed off the post and wide. Despite the shot advantage, and thanks to the play from Kosinski, the two teams went into the halftime break with the game tied at 0-0.
The second half started with Sage controlling the play again. However after withstanding the opening Gators attack, Keuka flipped the field. They were able to earn a couple of corners and in the 65th minute earned free kick off of a foul by Sage. David took the kick and sent it just past the finger tips of the Sage keeper and into the back of the net for the 1-0 lead. Sage would not go away and continue to press. Kosinski remained strong in net for Keuka. She stopped all seven shots on goal from Sage in the second half to earn the shutout and secure the 1-0 victory for Keuka.
