Myles Moffat led Lenoir-Rhyne with six goals scored which was the first 6-goal performance from an LR player since Joe Buduo did so against Alderson Broaddus on March 31, 2019. Toron Eccleston finished with four goals and an assist and Eric Dickinson netted three goals and a pair of assists to go with two ground balls.
Mitchell Linklater had two goals and an assist and added three ground balls. Patrick Sullivan went 9-of-14 on face offs and had a team-high six ground balls.

This was the last regular season road game for LR who finishes 5-0 in the regular season away from home. The Bears broke the mark for longest winning streak with its 13th straight win. The previous mark of 12 was done twice, most recently in 2018. LR has also won 11 straight SAC contests and over their past 16 games, the Bears have gone 15-1.
