UWS went 18-2-1 in their regular season defeating CSS (11-8-2) to take the UMAC championship title. The Yellowjackets defended their title from 2017 when they defeated the Saints in the championship round.

 "Why we've done well is we've done so much work on the mentality of our guys on being mindful on focusing on the present," said head coach Joe Mooney.

Yellowjacket's Blake Doyea struck first with his fourth of the season. Darby Henderson tied the game for the Saints with his second of the season. In the second half UWS scored two goals in under four minutes coming from James Bruce and Eric Watson.  Bruce ended the regular season with 15 goals. 

 "You know we've just got to continue the momentum that's been created so far this year by this group of boys and the coaching staff and I think honestly its just an opportunity for us to go out and enjoy the occasion," said said junior forward Erik Watson.

UWS will advance to the NCAA tournament matchups to be determined.
