Junior attackman Logan Adams (Grosse Pointe, Mich.) collected two goals and two assists on the field, as did freshman attackman Mason Smith (Virginia Beach, Va.). Junior face-off specialist Bo Delaney (Marston Mills, Mass.) racked up an impressive eight ground balls, winning 11 of the 15 face-offs he took, and scored one goal.
