The Saints (3-8, 0-3 CAC) tied the game on a goal by Chris Wascak with 10:21 left in the game, but the Wolverines (2-7, 1-2 CAC) got a goal from Brad Bivins (Dover, Del./Caesar Rodney) less than a minute later to take the lead for good.  Wesley added goals by Dan Skeels (Roseland, N.J./West Essex) and Jack Skeels (Roseland, N.J./West Essex) down the stretch to put the game out of reach, while holding Marymount off the scoreboard for the remainder of the contests.
