D'Youville only allowed eight total shots in the first as the two teams went into half with Medaille leading 1-0.
The second half was where the Mavericks found a groove on offense. They scored three goals and tallied 16 shots to bring their goal total to four, carrying their lead all the way to the end and defeating the Spartans by the final score of 4-0.
Center back Josh Hammer (Amherst, NY/Sweet Home) led the team with three shots in the game. Three other players tallied at least one. In goal, Kyle Dick (Churchville, NY/Churchville-Chili) made eight saves while Juan Rosales (Guatemala City, Guatemala/Village School) three saves.
