The Tigers won the ensuing face-off and Haensel connected with Angus Burke to give the Tigers a 2-0 edge at 24:24. The 13 seconds between tallies was four seconds off the NCAA record of nine second between goals set by American versus GW in 1987.

Haensel had a hand in all three of Towson's scores and finished with a goal and two assists on the afternoon.
