In a battle for possession in the first half, the first shot of the game was not recorded until 16:28 into the game. That shot was fortunate for the Wolves as Samba Doukhansy found the back of the net. Claude Tuyishimire took the ball down the right wing and sent a cross into Doukhansy for the goal. The next six shots in the half would be by Penn St.-Abington, but the Nittany Lions would not score as the Wolves led 1-0 at the break.

It was Penn St.-Abington who capitalized on their first shot of the second half. The Nittany Lions scored 2:03 into the period to tie the game. Abington then took the lead and quickly doubled it with goals in the 58th and 61st minutes. Just 56 seconds after Abington's third goal, the Wolves pulled one back. Christian Cupello sent in a corner kick and it was headed home by Humberto Flores. Penn St.-Abington would reestablish their two-goal lead by the Wolves answered in the 72nd minute. Joshua Card sent a cross into the box from the left wing. Just like in the first half, the cross found Samba Doukhansy for the goal to cut the Abington lead to one at 4-3. Keuka College would be held without a shot, however, as the Wolves fell at Penn St.-Abington on Saturday.
