The Mavericks built a 3-0 first-half lead on goals by Kevin Dhillon, Tor and Pablo Ordonez as they improved their season record to 15-2-0. Tor closed the scoring with a second-half goal.

Nick Kurtz needed to make just three saves for the shutout.
The visiting Panthers were limited to six shots on the night and attempted just two corner kicks to the Mavericks’ nine. Adam Forster suffered the loss in net, collecting nine saves. Pitt-Bradford ended the season with a record of 3-14 and 2-7 in the AMCC.
