- The score stayed that way until early in the 57th minute when Satrustegui struck again, heading a left-flank service from Einarsson inside the near post to make it 2-0.
- The Penmen added another just 1:43 later when Einarsson tallied a goal of his own, gathering a rebound off a Chibout shot at the top of the box and ripping a shot that found the back of the net.
- SNHU made it 4-0 midway through the 68th minute when Chibout delivered a ball from left-to-right onto the foot of sophomore Tom Marriott (Nottingham, England), who blasted a shot into the far left side of the net.
- Sophomore Andre Pereira (Cheshire, Conn.) extended the lead to 5-0 early in the 71st minute, heading home a rebound off a hard shot from junior Michael Goncalves (Ludlow, Mass.).
- Junior Jonathan Lach (Norton, Mass.) capped the scoring in the 73rd minute when he buried a shot after redshirt-sophomore Salim Sidique (Bronx, N.Y.) slid near the right flank to poke the ball to his feet.
