With 4:02 left in the first period, Nealon scored his second of the game. Thirty-eight seconds later, blue liner Brody O’Doherty made it 4-0.  Brady Monteleone scored with just twenty-seven seconds remaining in the first period.

Catizone collected his second goal on the night at the start of the second. Anthony Scorcia followed up to make it 7-0 Friars. Thomas Azzariti scored his first goal of the game just past the midway mark. Azzariti made it 8-0 with less than a minute left in the second period. 

Monteleone found the back of the net at the start of the third period. Scorcia scored his second just past the midway mark. Joseph Rocco scored his first of the night to make it 12-0. 

Thomas Ulmschneider started his sixth game of the 2023-2024 season. He recorded his third win of the season, as well as his first shutout of the year. Christopher Primiani started in net for Longwood. The Lions Goaltender strung together a string of spectacular saves in the first period, but it wasn’t enough to keep the game within reach.
