Hartwick College 1 vs. Keuka College 0

Keuka College came out strong against the host Hawks and looked to have taken an early lead. In the 12th minute, the Wolves thought to have taken a 1-0 lead as a cross got past the keeper and knocked in. However, after deliberation between the referee and assistant referee, they determined Keuka College to be offsides, negating the goal. Hartwick College would play the rest of the first half on their front foot. Keeper Jessica Pegg came up big for the Wolves, making three saves in the half. She had a leaping save on a long shot by Hartwick, tippng it over the crossbar in the 27th minute. The Hawks would break through in the final minutes of the first half and carry a 1-0 lead into halftime.

The Green and Gold controlled possession early in the second half but were unable to generate a shot against the Hawks defense. Hartwick would take control of possession and pressure the Wolves' goal in the half. Hartwick totaled 17 shots in the half, 10 on goal, but freshman Jessica Pegg was up to the task, making all 10 saves. Neither team would score in the half as Hartwick College hung onto the 1-0 victory.
