News and Notes: CSI had their hands full last year against the Scarlet Raiders, as they were out-shot, 24-7 (14-3 on goal), as RU scored three second-half goals to break the game open, 4-1. Wysokowski was the goal scorer for CSI last year but was injured in that game and missed the rest of the season. The Raiders were selected to finish 6th in the NJAC Preseason Poll, and sport a 3-1 record against CSI at home since the team’s first met back in 2005. CSI has won its last five road openers to start a season.
