After Albany freshman TD Ierlan won the first five draws against Austin Henningsen, senior Jon Garino Jr. took over, won 12 of 14, and the Terps quickly built an insurmountable lead as they dominated possession time. Just 10 minutes into the game, Maryland held a 3-1 lead thanks to three different goal scorers.

Kent kept Boston College close with three straight goals to cut the margin to 11-9, then assisted on Dempsey Arsenault's goal with 14 minutes left to get the Eagles back within a goal.

Things got off to a positive start for Penn State when Maria Auth scored to give the Nittany Lions an early 1-0 lead.

"It was a heck of a game tonight", head coach Cindy Timchal said after the game.

With the scoreline at 10-8, Maryland, the game took a similar turn as the later end of the first period.
