Cazenovia tied it up, but the Wolves answered back with a pair of goals to make it 3-1. After a Wildcat goal, the game looked to be 3-2 after one quarter, but the Wolves struck late. Will York (Canandaigua) and Kasey Gallina each scored in the final 37 seconds as Keuka led 5-2 after the first quarter.

Brandon Clark opened the scoring in the second quarter as the Wolves took a 6-2 lead. It would be a low scoring frame. Cazenovia scored a goal, but Kasey Gallina found the back of the net with 27 seconds left to give the Wolves a 7-3 halftime advantage.

The Wolves pushed their lead to 9-3 with a pair of goals in the third quarter. Cazenovia College scored with five minutes left to make it 9-4. With less than a minute left, Seth Spurgeon scored a man-up goal to end the third with a 10-4 advantage.

The late tally by Spurgeon would prove to be the final goal for Keuka College. Cazenovia College outscored the Wolves 4-0 in the fourth quarter, but Keuka built too big of a lead as the Wolves held onto the 10-8 conference victory.
