The Scots tipped the scales in the second, holding a 6-4 advantage in shots. Gordon got on the board early in the half with a tally from Ben Mollenhauer in the 54th minute, then added a late insurance goal by Julius Swaim in the 85th to take the 2-0 win.

Brody Veleber earned the win for the Gordon side, stopping all four shots faced in the shutout. John Villanueva (Gray, Maine) made two saves on four shots in the loss.
