Middlebury started the scoring at 18:24 in the first half, when Channing Weymouth deflected Reid Berrien's shot over the goalkeeper and into the back of the cage.  The game remained at 1-0 until the 31:15 mark in the second half, when after a scramble in front of the net, Elspeth MacMillan evened the score. The Ephs moved ahead of the Panthers at 13:55 when Meghan McGowan received a pass in the middle from Ashley Sewell and dribbled past the diving goalkeeper, making the score 2-1.  With only 3:05 left in regulation, Allison Smith directed a pass to Janie Mackey in the corner, who deflected the ball high into the back of the cage, to tie the score at 2-2.  Middlebury ended the game 4:45 into overtime, after Reid Berrien wound up and cranked Channing Weymouth's feed into the corner of the goal.
