Records: Babson (2-2) | UMass Dartmouth (1-2)
How it Happened
Peters found the net first in the second quarter, and then tallied three scores in the third to register the Corsairs on the scoreboard. Freshman Donovan Prozinski (Ashland, Mass.) and senior Anthony Gallo (Bridgewater, Mass.) both provided assists, and goalkeeper Matt LaFond (Bridgewater, Mass.) posted 16 saves for the Corsairs in the full 60 minutes.
For Babson, sophomore Samuel Mishkind (Chappaqua, N.Y.) and freshman Owen Allen (Franklin, Mass.) each finished with four goals and assist, with junior Axel Brown (Little Compton, R.I.) and junior Brendan Duffy (Duxbury, Mass.) posting two goals and an assist apiece.
All four of Peters' goals came in straight succession for UMass Dartmouth over the course of nine minutes of game time. The Beavers converted on all three of their man-advantage opportunities in the first half to help open up a 9-0 advantage before Peters finally put the Corsairs on the board with 13 ticks left in the frame.
On UMass Dartmouth's first man-advantage of the second half, Peters made the score 9-2 on the helper from Prozinski. He then found the cage twice more in the next five minutes, bringing the Corsairs within five, but Babson found its stride once again to close the contest with six unanswered goals. Mishkind registered his team's final three scores to keep a comfortable distance for the Beavers.
