The teams played to a scoreless draw for 40 minutes, with Levine keeping the Colonials in the game despite being massively outshot.
With 12:06 left in the third period, Brandon Denham scored his first career goal to put the Colonials ahead. From there, Levine and the Robert Morris defense held on for the win.
