The Tampa Warriors are made up of veterans who have sustained a combat injury or have received a disability rating from the Veteran's Administration. The Warriors are a partner program of the USA Warriors Hockey program, which plays out of the Washington D.C. area.

  • Robert Dromerhouser found the back of the net in the second period off an assist from Ethan Oliva to put the Mocs in the lead before Snyder evened it back up at two shortly after. 

  • Oliva and Dromerhouser reversed roles to put the game-winner between the pipes to end off the second period. 

  • Midway through the third period, Jake Comisar netted the Mocs' fourth goal unassisted to put the game out of reach for the Warriors.
