The two losing teams will meet Friday at 1pm, with the two winners squaring off at 4pm. A 7pm will be played Friday night, pitting the winner of the loser’s bracket game and the loser of the winner’s bracket game in another elimination game. The CUNYAC Championship will conclude on Saturday, April 30, at 1pm with a 4:00 pm game to follow if necessary.
Coming off of a 2010 Championship and one of the best seasons in program history, the Dolphins struggled to start 2011. CSI began with a 1-6 record before spurting eight consecutive wins to follow. From there, the Dolphins had a bumpy road but prevailed in the end with a 20-15 record to finish the regular season.
The Dolphins defeated the beavers in all three meetings this season 3-1 and 6-2 in conference with a lop-sided 20-4 victory in the third non-conference matchup.
