Penn State Behrend answered back with five straight points of its own to make the score 23-22, but Frostburg State scored the next five and went on to a 30-25 victory.

Penn State Beherend opened an early 7-2 in the second game, but Frosburg State scored 10 of the next 13 points to move in front 12-10. The Lions then used a 7-0 run to open a 17-12 advantage, but the Bobcats stormed back and outscored the Lions 18-3 the rest of the way to win 30-20.

The Bobcats held a slight 6-5 lead early in game three and used a 12-3 run to pull away. Penn State Behrend never got closer than nine points the rest of the way as FSU recorded a 30-17 win.
