In the second quarter, UMW started with a goal by Davis off an assist by senior Mike Marson to put their lead up to two, but the Lions would roar back with a barrage of goals in the last minute of the half to tie the score at 5-5 at intermission.
The third quarter was all Albright as they were able to score four straight goals in the period and shut out the Eagles going into the fourth.
In the final frame, UMW used goals by juniors Owen Dingman and Conor Healy to draw to within 9-7 with 6:27 left in the game. However, the Lions extended their lead by scoring the next four goals to end the game at a score of 13-7.
UMW had 31 shots (7-31), had seven saves and went (11-24) on faceoffs. While Albright had 30 shots (13-30), won (13-24) of their faceoffs and had 12 saves.
