Robert Morris came out firing in the third quarter. They scored four of the first five goals, evening out the score between the two competitors. Thankfully, Davis and Dutch Furlong ’24 each found the back of the net in the final two minutes of the frame to give the Orange and Blue back its lead, at 13-11. Richie Striano ’24 notched the final goal and the insurance tally to make the final score 14-12.
