"I thought first half, we were a little sluggish," said Blue Jays associate head coach Bill Dwan, who filled in for head coach Dave Pietramala (lower back infection) for the third straight contest. "I thought UMBC did a really good job in the first half. It was 7-6 and we had won a majority of the faceoffs. They were scoring on a bunch of possessions. … I thought in the second half, we played a little harder, did a little better job. Knocked the ball to the ground a little bit and actually tried to take them out of some of the things they were doing behind the cage."
