At the 15 minute mark, Daniel Tsygankov scored CSI’s second goal on a breakaway.
CSI had four shots in the first half while the Rams had three, all on goal.
The Dolphins kept strong in the second half scoring their third goal five minutes into play. Giovanni Cortese tallied his first goal of the season as Brandon Cadmen’s corner kick found him for the short shot in goal. The Rams added a single goal with 10 minutes remaining as Renato Ipince scored after he rebounded his first shot that was blocked off of CSI’s Stephen Caifa in goal. CSI’s Charles Iwobi added his first goal of the season in the 82nd minute of play to stretch the lead to 4-1.
