As expected the contest was tight from the first pitch as great pitching and defense kept the game scoreless through three innings. The Wolves would finally get on the board first thanks to an RBI double by Savannah Sommers as Wesleyan would take a 1-0 lead. Despite several players coming up with base hits for the Wolves, including Jahni Kerr who went 3-3 on the night, Lovetts defense would stand tall not allowing Wesleyan to pick up any additional runs.
