Blake Woodrel found the net twice and Cameron Merrick ripped a shot into the net to give Saline a 5-1 lead after one period.

Colman McNamara, Aidan Granica, and Antonio Giacalone found the net in the second period and the Hornets lead would grow to 8-3 after two.

Woodhaven scored early in the third, but Bryce Ronewicz and Tristan Trier answered for Saline to make the final 10-4.

Andrew Updike, Max Sorel, Giuseppe Giacalone, Granica, and Cullen Ellis had two assists each, while Woodrel, Bird, Max Muir, and Luke Kelley had one assist each.

The Hornets improved to 19-5-1 overall on the season.
