The Dukes found the net first as Bell scored in the 35th minute off an assist from junior Scott Gibson and freshman Greg Annan. Less than a minute later, Robert Morris switched goalkeepers due to injury and nine minutes later Bell scored again to give the Red and Blue a 2-0 lead. The Colonials (2-5-1) scored in the 70th minute to end the day's scoring in what turned out to be a quite physical contest. Goalkeeper Zach Varga had five saves for DU.
The Dukes controlled play for the majority of the game, outshooting the Colonials 7-3 in the first half and 9-5 in the second frame. The Red and Blue also had a 5-3 advantage in corner kicks. Both keepers made five saves for their respective teams.
