St. Mary's 15, George Washington 2

St. Mary's established itself early with an energized first quarter, where they scored seven of their 15 goals. They shut out George Washington in both the second and third quarters.
Several of the Pirates starters were not present due to spring break. Coach Ike Anderson had some holes to fill on defense, and he switched usual starting goaltender, Tyler Anderson, to defense and put defenseman Dylan Kait in net. The switch worked, Kait only faced six shots and Anderson was impressive in the backfield, Ike Anderson said.
Junior Alex Greenly scored six goals.
"Several of our players have been involved in offseason leagues," Ike Anderson said. "They're starting to buy into it."
