It took just three minutes for Ben Pulsford (JR/Slough, England) to find the back of the net, scoring on a assist from Afery Patton and Connor Sherman (JR/Flushing, Ohio). A throw-in from Patton nicked the head of Sherman to redirect to Pulsford. The junior completed a nifty sliding finish at the back post to give SSU the early lead.
