Freshman Belle Coleman then added to the lead after another assist from Beemer to put the Lady Lions ahead 2-0 with eight minutes remaining in the first half.

Wallenpaupack would get on the board with three minutes before halftime, then scored four minutes into the second half to tie the score.

A penalty stroke would give Wallenpaupack the lead with 17 minutes left in the game, and the Lady Buckhorns would add an insurance goal eight minutes later for the win.
