Bryn Athyn College dominated SUNY Poly as the Lions held the Wildcats scoreless in the first quarter. With a 13-7 shot advantage, freshman attack James Vandergrift assisted in three of the four goals to help the Lions take a 4-0 lead into the second quarter. Only 24 seconds into the second period (14:36), Vandergrift was assisted by Blair to score a goal and helped the Lions take a 5-0 lead. The Wildcats then responded with five goals to draw their deficit to one, 6-5 heading into half time. 

The Lions performed in the third quarter the same way in the first quarter by holding the Wildcats scoreless and had shots and face-off advantages. Vandergrift made good use of a man-up opportunity with the help of Nolan Frame to start the scoring and Landels connected on the next two goals and was assisted by Connor Buick and Vandergrift. Then Jon Carr would connect on his second unassisted goal in the game to help the Lions take a 10-5 lead. In the fourth period, Vandergrift assisted Ricky Tran for the Lion's 11th goal of the game. Despite the Wildcats scoring two more, the Lions would run the clock down to an eventual 11-7 North Eastern Athletic Conference victory.
