All-America Dolphins attackman Mike McDonald (four goals) was named the Most Outstanding Player of the game.

Le Moyne steadily pulled away from the Golden Lions (12-2), who were blanked in the fourth quarter.

Four other Le Moyne players were named to the Division II All-America team: midfielder Matt Cassalia, defensemen Chris Doran and Travis Tarr and goaltender Jared Corcoran. kent.baker@baltsun.com
