James Cody added a final Golden Eagle score with a two-man advantage at 16:23 for Brockport before Rob Sgarbossa (Campbellville, ONT) posted the eighth Morrisville State tally with less than two minutes remaining on the clock.

Nelson and Shultz led Morrisville State with two goals, assisting one a piece, as Matheson and Longland posted one score and an assist each.
