Colton Schenck gave the Red Hawks the lead with 9:13 left and Marc Scoran added an unassisted tally for a 3-1 lead. Zach Schreck collected the next two goals before Mangan scored his first with six seconds to play in the opening quarter.

Dickinson came out on fire in the second period with the first three goals to pull within 6-4 before Mangan ended the run with 8:54 to play. The Red Devils' Brian Gleason answered the score with one of his own goal however Mangan found the back of the net twice, the latter with 2:45 left putting Montclair State in front 9-5.

Dickinson, which trailed 9-6 at halftime, scored the first goal of the third to get within two. Michael Schreck countered with a goal for Montclair State and, after Tyler White tallied for the Red Devils, Joel Van Der Wal set up Shane Raymond for a goal with 7:18 remaining giving the Red Hawks a 11-8 lead.

Brian Cannon made it a two-goal contest with 5:53 left in the third however Michael Schreck scored with 70 seconds remaining in the third and then 1:15 into the fourth as Montclair State widened its advantage to 13-9. Gleason scored seven seconds after Schreck's tally but Mangan's fifth goal with 4:39 left extended the Red Hawks' lead to 14-10.

Connor Cunningham finished with three assists for Montclair State, which was outshot in the game 51-32. Van Der Wal had three ground balls in the game with Scoran and Kiel Dietrich each forcing a pair of turnovers.
