The Saints scored the winning goal with 2:48 left and improved to 9-4. The Catawba Indians fall to 5-6.

Catawba rallied to tie on goals by Liam Lynch (7:31) and Joe Barber (5:19). Matt Hommel was able to get the winning goal and the final chance for Catawba was wide in the final 20 seconds and Limestone ran out the clock.
The Indians jumped out quickly to a 3-0 lead on goals by Barber, Chase Scott and Lynch. The Saints tied it before Catawba reeled off four more goals to go up 7-3 early in the second quarter. Cole Fanzo had two of those goals. Limestone closed to a goal by the half, scoring the final three of the period then the first two of the third to go on top for the first time at 9-8.
