Bucknell came out strong in the second stanza, posting five unanswered goals to increase its lead to 8-2 at the half.
The Bison controlled the second half of the game, tallying nine goals, while sophomore Duke Becker broke through on a power play in the third quarter, and Deamer tallied his second goal of the game in the fourth period to put the final score at 17-4.
