HOW IT HAPPENED

- In the first 45 minutes, the Cougars held the majority of the possession.

This was Tziachris' second goal on the season and McNamee's second assist and sixth point on the season.

-Clark confirmed the win when junior Inonge Kaloustian (Prince George's County, M.D.) dribbled by the Worcester State defense and put one into the back-left corner of the net.

-The win will count as the third straight shoutout victory for sophomore Morgan Small (Quakertown, Penn.). Worcester State goalkeepers, Jill Zinkus (Grafton, Mass) and Tori Socci (Blackstone, Mass.) split the game and earned a combined nine saves in the loss.
