The win snapped a four-game losing streak for Stevenson (10-1) who improved to 4-5 all-time at Sea Gull Stadium. It was also the sixth
time in 15 career meetings that the game was decided by two goals or less, including the fourth out of the last seven.

Candon, who had just one assist in three previous games in the series, finished with three points on two goals and one assist. He also picked up his third career game-winning goal.

The Mustangs trailed 3-2 with 6:06 remaining in the first quarter following Stephen Norris’ third goal of the game.

However, Candon tied the game just 41 seconds later before sophomores Billy Burgoyne (Boonton Township, N.J./Mountain Lakes) and Michael Crowe (Arlington, Va./Yorktown) each netted second quarter tallies to give Stevenson a 5-3 halftime lead.

The goals were the beginning of a 6-0 run for the Mustangs who added three third-quarter goals, including two from senior Tyler Reid
(Clinton, Conn./Xavier) and a second from Burgoyne as Stevenson led 8-3 with 10:30 left in the third.

Salisbury (10-3) answered with a 5-0 run of its own, capped by Eric Kluge’s third goal of the game to tie it at 8-8 with 5:56 to play as
the Sea Gulls held Stevenson scoreless for a span of 19:34.

Reid added an insurance goal with just seven seconds remaining, his third score of the game. He now has six goals in six career meetings against Salisbury with five of those coming at Sea Gull Stadium.

Meanwhile, Dashiell finished with two assists and the Salisbury native now has three goals and five assists in six all-time meetings against the Sea Gulls. He also picked up the win in his first-ever game against his brother Brady who is a freshman attacker for Salisbury.

In goal, freshman Dimitri Pecunes (Baltimore, Md./Calvert Hall) won his first career start against the Sea Gulls, making 12 saves,
including six in each half. He is the third Mustang to win his first-ever start against Salisbury, joining Geoff Hebert in 2009 and
Ian Bolland in 2011.

Kluge totaled three goals and one assist to lead the Sea Gulls who were 0-for-6 with the man-advantage. Norris also finished with three
goals while Wade Korvin had three points with two goals and one assist. Alex Taylor totaled 15 saves in goal.

Stevenson continues its three-game homestand with a Commonwealth Conference contest at Alvernia on Saturday beginning at 1:00 p.m.
