In the 60th minute. Middlebury’s Kirk Horton sent a ball from 30 yards out that found a streaking Glaser down the right side. Glaser sent a one-touch shot into the top-left corner. Just over six minutes later, Glaser scored during a scramble in front of the goal.
Panther goalie Greg Sydor finished with a pair of saves, while two Cadet netminders combined for seven saves.
On Saturday, the Panthers blanked league foe Connecticut, 2-0. The Camels dropped to 2-1.
