The 2008 Falcons opened with two wins on the road before losing at home to Rowan 3-1. Undaunted, Messiah reeled off 11 consecutive wins to close out the regular season, including six shutouts and outscoring opponents 70-8. A conference title advanced the Falcons to the NCAA tournament where they were named the top seed. A shutout win at home set up another meeting with Rowan, and this time the Falcons won, posting a 2-1 double-overtime victory. A loss to #4 Tufts ended the season in the semifinals. Julie Barton, Ashley Mowery, and Brittany Godshall earned All-American honors.
