The Lady Bulldogs worked together to make a comeback against Indiana Tech and take the win. Indiana Tech scored the first two goals in the first 5 minutes of the game and took the lead until the last 16 seconds of the game when Tennessee Wesleyan put in the knotting goal to send the game into overtime. 

The Lady Bulldogs were down 3-5 at halftime but felt confident they still had a chance coming out of the locker room and scoring the first goal to pull within one. However in the first 20 minutes of the second half, for every goal TWC put in Indiana Tech put in 2 and then 3 more to pull ahead 10-6. In the last six minutes of the half the Lady Bulldogs outscored the Warriors 6-1 to send the game into overtime for the first time this season. The Lady Bulldogs scored in the first 3 minute overtime period going into the second 3 minute period with the lead 12-11. Just a few seconds into the final period, Indiana Tech scores the tying goal. Thirty seconds later the final goal was scored by Tennessee Wesleyan who was able to control the clock for the final two and a half minutes and win 13-12.
