The Shoremen (2-2) raced out to a 4-0 lead after the first quarter and held a 5-1 advantage after Kaski scored with 10:49 left in the second quarter. The Wolverines (2-4) closed to within two goals by halftime as Eric Crumbock scored with 3:49 left and assisted on an extra-man goal by Joe Trezza 45 seconds later.
Washington broke the game open with a 5-0 third quarter during which the Shoremen held a commanding 17-3 advantage in shots. Sophomore attackman Bennett Cord (Gaithersburg, MD/Gaithersburg) gave the Shoremen a 10-3 cushion when he scored off an assist from junior midfielder Dave Lundquist (West Chester, PA/Henderson) with 13 seconds left in the period.
