The 2017 Falcons opened with a win at home before being on the road for five straight games, all wins for Messiah. The trend continued throughout the regular season as the Falcons went 17-0, with 10 shutouts. Four wins came against NCAA tournament teams. A pair of wins in the MAC Commonwealth tournament sent Messiah into the NCAA tournament as the top seed, where they won two games at home and moved into the semifinals. A 1-0 win over TCNJ in the semi put Messiah in the final against Middlebury. There, the Panthers handed the Falcons their first loss of the season. Carissa Gehman, Kristin Donahue, and Shayna Landis earned All-American honors.
