Just 5:30 into the second half, DeAngelis redirected Hingston’s shot from the edge of the circle into the back of the cage. Morrow rounded out the scoring on a play similar to the third goal. Hosford fired a shot from the edge of the circle and Morrow's stick emerged from a crowd in front of the goal to tip the ball past Trentini.
