The Game Story:

Hatton scored seven seconds later, giving the Mount a 4-0 lead with 10:12 left in the opening quarter.

The Mount added four more goals in the quarter with Matt Warner (Corning, N.Y./Corning East) scoring twice and Orban and Werner each finding the back of the cage. Michael Fleming scored the first of his three goals in the game for Robert Morris (0-7) to make the score 8-1 at the end of the first quarter.

The Mount scored six unanswered goals in the second quarter to take a commanding 14-1 lead. The Mount led 14-2 at the half.
