Tied 3-3 in the third period, sophomore forward Bill Carey (Weymouth, Mass.) potted the eventual game-winner at the 3:55 mark on feeds from senior forward Patrick Greene (Weymouth, Mass./Catholic Memorial) and J.J. Sabin (Milton, Mass./Tilton School) for a 4-3 advantage.

Junior forward Christopher Gorovitz (Framingham, Mass./Tilton School) added an insurance marker at 15:01 on assists by Greene and freshman defenseman Oliver Williams (Centerport, N.Y.). Just 52 seconds later, sophomore forward Bryan Rooney (Canton, Mass./New Hampton School) put the game on ice with his third goal of the season at 15:53 set up by Borges and freshman forward Kevin Aufiero (Canton, Mass.).

Junior defenseman Min Seong Kim (Seoul, South Korea/Northwood School) and Tyler Gordon (Franklin, Mass./Xaverian Brothers) added goals in the first period while freshman defenseman Brendan Greene (Weymouth, Mass.) netted his first-ever collegiate goal in the second to round out the scoring for Stonehill.

Franklin Pierce held a slight edge in shots on net in the game, 28-27, but freshman goaltender Chris Tasioupolos (Norwell, Mass./Thayer Academy) turned away 25 shots to improve to 3-5-0 overall on the season. Ravens netminder Patrick Dunn (Quincy, Mass./Utica College) stopped 21 shots.
