In the Rams' second game, Fordham took care of Connecticut College by a 14-7 final score.
Jake Bakas led the way for the Rams with a season-high five goals, while Fleming added three tallies. Itano, Allen, and Eric Minowitz rounded out the scoring with two goals apiece. In net, LeBeau made five saves in the first half, while Christian Flessner made four saves in the second half.
