Three straight goals by the visitors were met by a Savvoulides marker at 17:11, making the score 4-2, but UMaine Farmington followed by rattling off another 3-0 run, with St. Germain scoring once and assisting another. Savvoulides created a 7-3 margin at 8:28, just 24 seconds after St. Germain's goal, but the Beavers responded with the next seven markers prior to a Savvoulides tally with 7:30 left in the second half.
