The host Warriors struck first on Sunday as a deflected pass fell right to the foot of an attacker and a high shot went into the net for the 1-0 lead 20 minutes into the game. Lycoming would out-shoot Keuka 7-3 in the half, but the score would hold at 1-0 into halftime.

Keuka College came out fast in the second. In total they had 15 shots in the half, with the Lycoming goalie making nine saves. The Green and Gold would capitalize on the transition. Seconds after Pegg made save for the Wolves, Morgan Fuller would get sprung on a one-on-one breakaway. The sophomore converted to draw the game level in the 72nd minute. The two teams pressed for the go-ahead goal and both goalies were called upon for saves in the final minutes. The game would remain tied at the end of regulation, forcing overtime.

Both teams had a chance in the opening minutes of overtime, with the attempt at each end of the field being saved. In the 95th minute, the Warriors got called for a foul 35 yards from their own goal. Morgan Fuller took the free kick for Keuka and sent it into the box. The ball took one bounce in the box and Grace Wolf ran onto the end of it. Wolf headed the ball in near the left post to give Keuka the 2-1 overtime victory.
