  • Wyatt Whitlow was hot to start for the Maroons, scoring the game's first three goals with a pair of assists from Luke Kammerman and another by Julian Kammerman. The Polar Bears got on the board with a goal at 2:06, but two goals in nine seconds (1:17 and 1:08) by Whitlow and Jay Frye put the Maroons ahead 5-1 after the first 15 minutes. 
  • Clayton Bewick started off the scoring in the second period off an assist from Luca Docking but was answered by ONU less than two minutes later to keep the Maroons lead at four with 9:16 left in the first half. Six straight goals by Roanoke to end the second quarter put the Maroons ahead by 10 as Ethan Caldwell, Docking, Whitlow, L. Kammerman, Sean Kennedy, and a second by Docking, all contributed goals to the scoring run.
  • The third quarter saw ONU cut the Roanoke lead down to seven, outscoring the Maroons 4-2 in the period. But the goals by J. Kammerman and Quinn Evans saw Roanoke maintain a 14-6 lead.
  • Eight more goals came the Maroons' way in the fourth period with Docking, Noah Goad (man-up), Dominic Cuomo, Whitlow, Cuomo (again), Anthony Muniz (twice), and Noah Bell all scoring as the Roanoke lead expanded to 14 with 2:17 left, and the Maroons held on for the 22-8 win.
  • Alex Feuer (3-1) earned the win, playing just over three periods, and making six saves. 
  • The Maroons killed off every man-up opportunity for ONU, including a two-man advantage in the third period. Roanoke led the Polar Bears in ground balls (34-19), clears (16-12), face off wins (22-12), and shots (62-28)
