  • The visitors were able to break through in the sixth minute on a powerplay of their own when Nicholas Short sent a long pass to Cameron Mack to capitalize on the man advantage.

  • About ten minutes later a Rams defender brought down a UMD skater on a breakaway and a penalty shot was awarded. John Grealish was able to squeeze the shot thought the five hole and trickled in.
  • The Rams got on the board in the opening minute of the second when Matthew Paiotti scored unassisted on shothanded.
  • A little under midway through the period Mack scored with helpers from Dillon Radin and Sean Leonard.
  • Radin and John Grealish scored to send the Corsairs to the breakup 5-1. Jake Maynard, Mack and Michael Perrone each tallied in the final frame to reach the final margin.
