Becker then responded in the 75th minute when junior Matthew Hillsberg (Burlington, Conn.) notched his 1st goal of the year, an unassisted one to account for all of the scoring.
Freshman Nicholas Hasenfus (Attleboro, Mass.) was brilliant in net for the Raiders as he made seven saves on the night while his counterpart, Becker junior Marco De Lauri (Edgeware, United Kingdom) stopped six of the seven shots he faced.
