Bowling put the Bishops on the scoreboard just 28 seconds into the game, and Baumgartner followed with a goal to make it 2-0 before the duo scored goals less than 30 seconds apart. Baumgartner than set up junior midfielder Cory Kinder (Dublin/Scioto) on a goal less than a minute after that.

The Student Princes ended the Ohio Wesleyan run with a Dana Dudley goal midway through the first half, but senior midfielder Haley Savoie (Poway, Calif./Del Norte) answered for Ohio Wesleyan, scoring goals just 25 seconds apart.

The Bobcats led, 2-0, after the first quarter on a pair of Keegan Colegrove goals, the latter with just 5 seconds remaining in the period.

Ohio Wesleyan turned the tables during the second quarter, with junior midfielder Trent Schulte (Coronado, Calif.) picking up the ball after the opening face-off and scoring just 14 seconds into the quarter to put the Bishops on the scoreboard. Tennant followed with a goal just under 2 minutes later, and junior midfielder Luke Leyden (Northfield, Mass./Northfield Mt. Hermon) added a score to give the Bishops the lead at the 10:59 mark before Tennant’s goal midway through the quarter made it 4-2.
