Andrew Baird had three goals for Georgetown. The Hoyas scored four straight goals in the fourth quarter to pull away for the victory.

Georgetown led 4-2 at halftime and scored four times in the third quarter to open an 8-3 lead. Taking advantage of a man-up opportunity, Zach Rodgers scored with one second left in the third before the Minutemen strung together three straight goals in the first five minutes of the fourth quarter to pull within 8-7.

But Cannon responded 37 seconds after UMass cut the lead to one. Taking the ball from behind the net, Cannon sped past a defender and beat him to the top of the crease, took a shot past another UMass defender and gave Georgetown a 9-7 lead with 9:23 to play. Baird scored with 5:16 to play to push the lead back to three goals. He used a spin move to push past a defender on the right side and then took a low shot that beat UMass goalie Doc Schneider.
