NCAA DIVISION II

The Wildcats found themselves trailing 1-3 at the interval. In the second half, the Wildcats begun what they thought was a comeback when they scored two quick goals to tie the score 3-3 with Menuh Wiah giving the assist for the Wildcats' second goal; however, Franklin Pierce were able to score two more goals to go ahead 3-5 before conceding a last-minute goal to the Wildcats to make the final score 4-5.
