The Bobcats had a tough opponent in their first regional post-season appearance since 1983, dropping a 5-0 decision to the ninth-ranked team in the nation, Springfield College.

The Bobcats battled in the first half and went into the locker room in a scoreless tie on their first game played on artificial turf this season. The second stanza was a different matter. After the Pride (19-4) opened the scoring three minutes into the second half, they busted the game open at the 27:35 mark, scoring the first of four goals in the next five minutes.

This was the second meeting ever between the two teams, with the first coming in 1974. The Bobcats finish the season at 7-8, having won three of their last four regular season contests under first-year head coach Wynn Hohlt. Of their eight losses, seven came to teams ranked among the top 25 in the nation at some point this season.
