Sal­is­bury scored seven goals in the sec­ond pe­riod while out­shoot­ing the home team, 15-1.

The spread at in­ter­mis­sion was 8-0.

“I thought we played tough with them in the first quar­ter, then made some mis­takes in the sec­ond quar­ter that they def­i­nitely cap­i­tal­ized on. And the game slipped away from us from there,” Wash­ing­ton coach Jeff Shirk wrote in an email Sun­day.

“At the end of the day they are the de­fend­ing na­tional cham­pi­ons and the #1 team in the coun­try,” he wrote. “We will learn from yes­ter­day, work to get bet­ter, and move on in a pos­i­tive di­rec­tion.”

The Shore­men are headed to Cen­te­nary (N.J.) on Sun­day, March 19. The game was pushed back a day to ac­com­mo­date Cen­te­nary, which changed its sched­ule due to in­clement weather early in the week.

Wash­ing­ton Col­lege of­fi­cials on Mon­day made the de­ci­sion to can­cel yes­ter­day’s sched­uled home game against Kenyon due to the fore­cast of snow and sleet and cold rain.

Wash­ing­ton’s 5-0 start in- cluded a 7-4 vic­tory at Frost­burg on March 4, aveng­ing last year’s 13-10 loss here, and a 14-5 de­feat of Coast Guard on March 8.

Against Coast Guard, Wash­ing­ton outscored its guest, 8-1, in the sec­ond half.

The Shore­men never trailed af­ter build­ing a 3-0 lead on Charles Walker’s unas­sisted goal with 3:51 re­main­ing in the first pe­riod.

Tan­ner Bar­bieri led the lo­cals with three goals and two as­sists. Tyler Pow­ers (one as­sist), Brady O’Neil and Boyles (one as­sist) each con­trib­uted two goals.

Flood fin­ished with 13 saves.
