The Longwood Lions generated several scoring chances, but a couple bad bounces prevented them from finding the back of the net. Christopher Primiani kept the game scoreless early on, but the high octane Chiefs offense managed to capitalize on a flurry of high danger scoring chances as the game progressed. The Lions line of Aydan Azmoun, William Keegan and Brandon Scheuermann did a good job of forcing turnovers that led to scoring chances in transition. Nicholas Gigante, Joseph Golod and Jacob Storm displayed great awareness in solid two-way performances for the Lions.

With Ryan Anatra out of the lineup for the fourth consecutive contest, the youngsters stole the show early on against the Longwood Lions. Jack Dolson, Evan LaFata and Jack McGarry showcased their high level speed and skill in transition. Liam Godbout and Luke Walther thrived in increased minutes for EI.
