How It Happened
- Oneonta State got on the board first with 8:29 remaining in the first quarter as Alec Solomito scored off an assist from Connor Coyle. Matty Allen evened things up for the Shoremen 1:44 later with an unassisted tally. Allen scored again with 56 seconds to go in the opening quarter to put the Shoremen ahead, 2-1.
- The Red Dragons knotted the score at two goals a piece when Robert Neubert fired in a transition goal off an assist from Coyle with 11:12 left in the second quarter. Another transition goal, this one scored by Nick Schuman off an assist from Coz Fiore, put Oneonta ahead, 3-2, with 7:29 to play before halftime. John Shea made it 4-2 with an unassisted goal for the Red Dragons with 5:35 on the clock. Oneonta tacked on another goal with 4:52 left as Solomito scored an extra-man goal off a Hunter DeLuca assist.
- Washington held an 18-9 advantage in shots in the first half, but Oneonta goalie Ryan Adler came up big with 10 first-half saves.
- Neither team scored in the third quarter until Powers converted a spinning shot in front of the goal off an assist from Tanner Barbieri with 5:24 to go. That was the only goal of the period.
- Allen pulled the Shoremen to within a goal when he scored his third of the night off a Brady O'Neill assist with 8:19 remaining in the fourth.

- A point-blank shot by Schuman was saved by Ben Flood with 3:04 left in overtime.
