Finger Lakes got out to a fast start on the Cannoneers, scoring in the first three minutes of the game.

Maggio would double the lead with a goal just 8 minutes later, this time off of a pass by McKenzie Miller. The Lakers would continue pressure in the first half with the offensive trio of Maggio, Miller, and Danielle VonHahmann each recording multiple shots, but Jefferson's keeper, Kate Gehrke was up to the task and recorded 11 saves on the half.
