Both teams battled for possession on Saturday in an evenly-matched contest. In the first half, Harrisburg had a 4-1 edge in shots. However, only one of those total five shots were on frame, with Velte recording the save. The game would go to halftime scoreless.

The second half continued to be even. Both teams had three shots, one on goal each, and two corner kicks. The keepers were there for their job as neither team scored and the game would go to overtime.

In the final minute of the first overtime period, Harrisburg sent a cross into the Keuka College box. The ball was chested and played to the right side. The Harrisburg attacker was there and shot back to the far post for the game-winning overtime goal as the Wolves fell 1-0.
