The 1-0 lead held up through halftime, before Ferrum's Thomas Roth responded with an unassisted tally at 60:34.

"We're extremely proud of the lads and the character they showed tonight after being down a goal twice. For a group of  guys to rebound like that shows how far we've come over the last few games. My staff and I are once again grateful to all the alumni and fans for their support." --Head Coach Enda Crehan
