Upon returning to the second half, Hatch struck against the Hornet's new goal keeper Jason Gray (East Thetford, VT) within the first two minutes to pad Lasell's advantage.  Cronin and Hatch came through with the final goals within ten minutes of that to boost Lasell to a 4-0 edge.  Stephen Petrin (Vernon, Conn.) assisted on Cronin's second goal of the day.

Lyndon State's single goal of the contest was scored by Patrice Lummba (Burlington, VT) just over 80 minutes into the matchup, unassisted, to finalize the score at 4-1.  Both Gray and Ian Oliver (Westport, Mass.), Lyndon's goalkeeper before the intermissions, collected five saves apeice.

Julian Dutton (Madison, Conn.) came out with his second victory of the season for Lasell, making four saves.
