The Foresters mounted a 2-0 lead in the first half, but Grace College knotted the score by the end of regulation and then took the match 3-2 with a goal four minutes into the first overtime.
Steffen Shannon netted both of HU's goals in the opening stanza. In the 31st minute, he finished a pass from Adam McLaughlin and nine minutes later Brad Kunze hit Steven McKay who then assisted Shannon to make it 2-0.

The tide began to change when the Foresters gave up an own goal to put Grace on the scoreboard in the 57th minute. The Lancers then got the equalizer at the 69:49 mark and regulation ended in a 2-2 tie. Four minutes into the overtime period, Grace pushed one past HU keeper Kevin Keske to seal the win.

With the loss, HU falls to 3-5-1 on the season and 0-1 in MCC play.
