Senior Justin Lawless (Quincy, Mass.) scored late in the third to increase the visitor's lead to 6-2. Prozinski notched the first two goals in the first minute of the fourth quarter to give the Corsairs a commanding 8-2 advantage before holding on for the win.

Defenseman Steven Tarpey (Shrewsbury, Mass.) and sophomore Dan Brown (Beverly, Mass.) collected five ground balls apiece, while Ryan Garland and Colin Claflin recorded identical totals for the home team.

Senior Nick Thayer (Chelmsford, Mass.) made 15 saves in the UMass Dartmouth net en route to his seventh win of the season, while Jesse Kutz turned away 14 attempts for the Panthers.
