The Mountain Lions had the better of the play in the first 45 minutes getting 11 shots off, but only two of those landed on frame. The Bobcats got off to a good start in the second half generating several quality chances, but was unable to break through.

In the 61st minute, Frostburg State was called for a hand ball at the top of the box, and Concord was awarded a penalty. Yasmin Mosby stepped to the spot and converted the penalty for the 1-0 lead. The Mountain Lions managed the lead for the remainder of the half and secured the 1-0 win. 

Leah Foster piled up nine shots for Concord, and Mosby added three more. Goalkeeper Leah Marsh finished the match with three saves.
