Bobby Abshire (2g) struck twice in just under two minutes. The second was on the advantage and set up by Brandan Nichtern. Nickolas Edinger (1g) added another in the waning seconds and Army was marching with a 4-1 advantage.
The full-frontal attack continued with Army grinding out a 5-0 second quarter when Alex Gekas (2g), Trevor Kelly (1g), Liam Davenport (1g), another from Gekas, and finally, the man with the best name in sports, Danny Kielbasa (1g,1a) pushed it to 9-1 at the half. Ryan Doran (1g) ended the onslaught to get it to 9-2.
:33 later, Shayne Fable added his second and the issue was, was the deficit too much to overcome? Nichtern checked in and erased the Hawks goals.
