The Great Danes started their seven-goal fourth quarter with a man-up goal to tie the game up at 8 with 10:47 to play. They then took a 9-8 lead after controlling the ensuing faceoff. A slew of turnovers and ground balls occurred on both sides of the field, but after UMBC committed a shot clock violation, the Great Danes converted the mistake and cashed in with 6:50 remaining and took a two-goal lead.

In the span of 20 seconds, McIntyre controlled a faceoff and served it to a waiting Frawley, who closed the gap to 10-9 with 6:37 to play. But the Great Danes used the same tactic to extend the lead back to two, 11-9, at the 6:30 mark. From there, Albany was in control as it closed out the quarter with three straight goals.

Albany scored just 57 seconds into the game, but UMBC responded to take a 4-1 lead with 11:07 to play in the second quarter. The Great Danes rallied to tie the game at 4 before Bohanan put the Retrievers ahead again, 5-4. With 1:26 remaining in the first half, Albany scored to tie it at 5 at halftime.

UMBC retook the lead in the third, 8-5, with goals from Zichelli, Bohanan and Patschorke, but Albany scored two late into the period to close the gap to 8-7 heading into the final 15 minutes.
