Washington tallied goals 30 seconds apart, almost four minutes into the game, to take an early 2-0 lead and added another score at 3:34 to go up 3-0. F&M answered a minute into the second quarter when Kevin Kilpatrick scored unassisted and then found Tristan Miller 2:50 later to bring the Diplomats within a goal, 3-2, with 11:10 left to the break. Washington countered with back-to-back scores to go into halftime with a 5-2 edge.
Billy Kempner struck twice in a 3:34 span to start the third and brought F&M within a goal, 5-4, at 11:26. Colin McKew assisted on the first goal and Matt Gillan found Kempner for the second. Washington responded with two straight goals to go up 7-4, before James Wenk and Jordan Barr hooked up for back-to-back scored to bring F&M within a point, 7-6, with 13:39 left in the game.
Bennett Cord put the Shoremen up 8-6 at 10:24, but McKew found Wenk a little under a minute later to make it 8-7. That was as close as the Diplomats would get as Washington scored three of the games' last four goals.
