Bay then scored off a free position shot with 6:50 remaining to bring the score to 16-15.

Marywood, undefeated in CSAC play and feeling Centenary's momentum scored with 3:17 remaining to retake a two goal lead. The lead was only save for :18 seconds however as Judd scored with just under three minutes left to once again close to within one goal.

With the Pacers holding a one goal lead, Marywood responded to Judd's goal :30 seconds later with the game's final score, giving Marywood a hard fought 18-16 win.
