The Panthers outshot Tufts this past Saturday, 20-14, but the third-seeded Jumbos scored the game’s only goal with 9:35 left in the first half, when Jumbo Ethan Feigin buried a rebound for the game-winner. The goal was the first allowed by the Panthers in the previous 407:56 of action.

Middlebury goalkeeper Ryan Grady made two saves, and goalie Erik Lauta made five stops for the Jumbos.

Tufts (13-1-3) went on to defeat Conn. College, 2-0 in Sunday’s final.
