Converse scored the first two goals to open the game and held a 4-3 edge at the break.  Catawba picked up goals in the first minute of the second half from Juliana Conte (Hampton, Ontario, CANADA) and Meredith Jones (Barnesville, MD/St. John's Catholic HS)  to go on top 5-4.  Bondurant and Brianna Hoffman were able to return the lead to Converse with 24 minutes left.

Conte pulled the Lady Indians even at 7-7 at the 22:20 mark, but the Valkyries pulled away in the final 15 minutes.  Hoffman and Sam Green scored about a minute apart to give Converse a 9-7 edge with 13:51 remaining and Chelsea Worrell made it 10-7 with 11:04 remaining.

Ebony Mills (Harrison, ME/Oxford Hills HS/Mount Ida) cut it to 10-8, but Bondurant scored back-to-back to up the margin to 12-8 with four minutes left.  Mills had consecutive goals to get the Lady Indians back within two goals, but after a penalty denied a third goal in a span of minute Converse ran out the clock.
