Kurt Lemmen (So., Orlando, Fla.) and Jack Hines (Jr., Riverside, Calif.) each added two scores, while Tyler Hewko (Sr., Laguna Hills, Calif.) and Jason Fung (Jr., Honolulu, Hawaii) added the final goals. Junior goalkeeper David Ostrom (Mission Viejo, Calif.) recorded 10 saves in three periods of action, while freshman Danny Harold (Corona Del Mar, Calif.) added five saves in the fourth quarter.
The Falcons are off next weekend, but return to action Oct. 18-19, when they host Iona in a pair of games at Cadet Natatorium.
