Casey totaled two hits and three RBI in the game. Chris Cotugno had a pair of run-scoring singles in the sixth inning as the Terriers batted around and broke the game open with seven runs. Wofford had five consecutive hits at one point, including a two-run Carbone single. Matt Lein had four hits while Blake Timanus added three to help key a 19-hit Wofford attack.
