Hood extended its lead to 14-1 midway through the second half before W&J closed with two goals from Harvey and another from Alex Dikos.

Harvey had a hand in all four W&J goals with three tallies and one assist. Kesley Roetenberg suffered the loss in goal after making nine saves.

The Blazers, which outshot W&J by a 31-20 margin, received four goals from Kitzmiller. Lauren Couch made 10 saves in goal.

The Presidents will be back in action Wednesday night at Allegheny (6:00 pm).
