Scalley, the reigning Northeast Conference Player of the Week, finished with nine points, and became just the third player in school history to join the 200-point club with 202 for his career.

Cody Lehrer and Eric Ososki finished with two goals each for the Mount, and Brett Schmidt scored a goal for the 36th game in a row, which is the longest streak in the nation.  

The Mount (4-4) was able to take control of the game in the second quarter by scoring four goals, while keeping Georgetown (2-3) off the board to take a 10-3 halftime lead.  The Mountaineers extended their lead to eight goals at 14-6 in the third and both teams were scoreless in the final quarter.

Scalley racked up three goals in the opening 10:05 of the game and Daniel Stranix added another for a 4-2 lead.  Scalley also dished out two assists in the quarter as the Mount was in front 6-3 through 15 minutes.

In the second quarter, Scalley got the scoring started, followed by a strike from Brett Schmidt and scores from Lehrer and Ososki for a 10-3 lead at half.

Georgetown goals at the 11:27 and 5:01 marks in the third quarter sandwiched two more Scalley goals. In the final 2:30 of the quarter, Ososki and Jake Willertz found the back of the net for the Mount.

For the Hoyas, Jeff Fountain and Brian Casey carried the offense with two goals apiece. Goalkeeper Jake Haley stopped nine shots in 60 minutes of action.

Adam Borgogelli made six saves to pick up the win in goal for the Mount, who outshot Georgetown, 39-19, on the evening. Face-off specialist Jon Marsalese won 12-of-23 face-offs and scooped up a game-high eight ground balls.

 The Mount also won the ground balls battle on the day with 28 to the Hoyas' 17.

On Saturday, March 16, the Mount will look to make it three wins in a row with a 1:00 p.m. road game at Drexel.
