• The Bison used a 7-1 run that stretched from the 21:43 mark of the first half to the 16:28 mark of the second to build a 9-4 lead, which proved too much for the Buckeyes to overcome even though they rallied to draw within a single strike with 5:08 remaining in the game.
• After Molly Wood made it a 9-8 game, Mary Margaret Kenney gave Bucknell needed breathing room by capitalizing on a free-position attempt with 3:46 on the clock. The Bison defense held fast the rest of the way, only giving up one shot on target.
