The win marked the program's fifth conference title since the league began sponsoring the sport in 2002. The Tigers claimed the CAA's automatic qualifier to the NCAA tournament with the 9-8 win agaisnt Massachusetts.

Mabus was named to the All-Tournament team, as were defenseman JoJo Ostrander, attackmen Ryan Drenner and Joe Seider, who was named the tournament's most outstanding player.

Mabus potted the game-winning goal with just less than two minutes remaining and the 30-second shot clock nearly expired. He finished with two goals.

Seider notched a hat trick while Greg Cuccinello ended a long scoring drought with a pair of goals. Max Siskind and Mike Lynch notched one goal apiece. Drenner, Mabus and Tyler Konen notched one helper each.

The Tigers await the 2015 NCAA Selection Show, which will be broadcast on ESPNU at 9 p.m. ET on Sunday.
