HOW IT HAPPENED

- Price and Sunderland tallied goals nine seconds apart to push Emerson's deficit up to four goals before another another trio of goals put the score at 7-0.
- Five minutes into the second was when Emerson halted Babson's scoring run with a goal from Gervais at the 9:43 mark and the score at 7-1. Just over two minutes after Gervais put in Emerson's first goal, Fulgione potted an unassisted goal at 7:10 to bring the Lions within five at 7-2.
- Babson tacked on two more goals from Riley Shaw and Price in the final four minutes of the half with the score sat at 9-2 going into the break.

- Fulgione contributed the third Lions' net at the 14:00 mark and was followed by a pair of unassisted markers from Menendez and Franklin with 9:49 on the clock.
- Babson's offense got going once again and used tallies from Karsh and Price to up their lead back up to six at 11-6 to wrap the third.
