* The Nor'easters got back in the game early in the second half when Callum Heaslewood and Cam Twombly worked a perfect give-and-go.

* Clouse came up with Colby's insurance goal with 19:03 left in the game. Kyle Douglas was fouled straight on from the goal about 19 yards out. With a five-man wall for UNE, Clouse managed to fire a low shot to the left corner.
