Oswego State used an early 5-0 run to build an 8-3 lead over the Wolves. Keuka College would pull it close in the set, but every time they did, the Lakers used a small run to create separation again. Oswego State took the opening set 25-20.

The Wolves held a one-point lead at 23-22 when Grace Allen had back-to-back kills to give Keuka the third set 25-22.

The Wolves opened the fourth on an ace by Lauren Kuipers and built an early 5-1 advantage. A four-point run flipped the set back to Oswego State at 13-10 and the Lakers would not surrender the lead. Multiple times, the Wolves would draw it to a one-point game, but were never able to overcome the Lakers. Oswego State won the fourth set 25-21, taking the match 3-1.
