HOW IT HAPPENED
Suffolk lit the lamp early and often with freshman Julia Hunt completing a hat trick over the first 20 minutes of play. Hunt's third goal of the night came in the 17th minute and pushed the Rams' advantage to 5-0. During that stretch Carley Pearce found the back of the net twice as well.
Suffolk maintained possession for the majority of the second stanza before a glimpse of lightening called the game in the blue-and-gold's favor in the 71st minute.
