The No. 3 Redhawks opened the scoring midway through the first half with Briggs Francis tapping in a pass from Oliver Bijur for the 1-0 lead.

Duriex doubled the lead with two minutes remaining in the first half, then added his third goal off a header and finished up the hat trick with 27 minutes remaining. Erik Stolen and Ryan Trus each had an assist for CVU (12-3).
