• The Saints tied the game in the 33rd minute as Sebastian Hendi collected a deflected ball and knocked it into the net, knotting the game at one.

• The score was tied at the half despite York outshooting the Saints 7-2 in the opening 45 minutes of play.

• Seven minutes later, sophomore Jordan Evans ripped a shot into the Saint net, just past the outstretched hands of Saints' goalie John Valcicak for the 4-1 Spartan lead. The goal is Evans' second of the year and second in three games.

• Freshman John Weeast pushed the Spartan lead to 5-1 in the 75th minute as he recorded his first career goal.

Match Notes:

The Spartans have now won six straight against the Saints as they lead the all-time series 25-2-3 … it will be the final regular season meeting as conference opponents for the two schools as Marymount is leaving the CAC for a yet unnamed conference in 2018-19 … the six goals are a season-high for the Spartans, one better than their five goal outburst against Catholic on September 3 … sophomore Joey Faddoul notched his first career goal in the win … freshmen Daniel Juresic and John Weeast also notched their first career goals in the win … freshman Zion Friday now leads York in points (11), goals (4) and assists (3) … the Spartans handed out a season-high three assists in the win … the Spartans' 17 shots were their second-highest total of the year … for the first time this year, the Spartans did not record a save.
