Morrisville State was first to fire one into the back of the cage, as Jamie Anderson (Harpursville, NY) rifled a corner pass from Stephanie Stahl (Greene, NY) past Hartwick keeper Megan Campbell just 11 minutes in.

Carlson brought the Hawks even for the third time at the 45 minute mark, before Wentlent posted the game winner on a shot from the top of the circle on a penalty corner opportunity at 55:28.
