The Green and White led 4-2 at the end of the first quarter and got goals from Fabel, junior Jason Cox (Hopkinton, Mass.) and sophomore Brendan Duffy (Duxbury, Mass.) in the second period to carry a 7-5 advantage into the break. Miskind tallied a pair of third-quarter markers, and Fabel completed his hat trick early in the fourth to keep the Beavers in front 10-8.

The Tigers got within a goal midway through the final stanza, but Babson caused five turnovers in the frame, and Mishkind notched a man-up goal in the final minute to seal the win.

First-year Christopher Aranalde (Rockville Centre, N.Y.) made nine of his 15 saves in the second half for the Beavers.
