The Wolves wasted no time on Wednesday night as Keuka College established a 2-0 lead five minute into the game. Off of a punt by the Lycoming keeper, Kelsey Maurer volleyed the ball directly to a streaking Morgan Fuller. The freshman beat the keeper on the right post for the 1-0 lead. Minutes later, Fuller sent a cross in from the left side and Julia Oglesby tapped it in for the 2-0 advantage. The game would settle in favor of the Warriors as Lycoming had a majority of possession and chances. Lycoming would make it a one-goal game in the 35th minute.

It was Lycoming who struck first in second half. Taking advantage of a foul in the Keuka end, Lycoming sent the free kick into the box and headed it home to draw the game level at 2-2. The final 35 minutes of the game would be a physical affair as both teams combined for three yellow cards and three red cards. The game looked destined for overtime until the final minutes. Keuka College got a free kick yards away from the Warriors' box. The Wolves played it quick and was partially cleared by Lycoming. Brooke Guernsey ran onto the clear and let a 25 yard shot go. The bending shot went off of the keeper's hands and into the net to give the Wolves a 3-2 lead. Keuka College would hold on for the victory on Wednesday.
