Last Year’s Result: Did not play
Players To Watch (CSI): Brayan Evo has been superb in the center of the pitch this season. Evo has been breaking down defenses all year and leads the Dolphins with three assists. Evo also leads the Dolphins in shots with 41 as he often finds himself open at the top of the 18 and will certainly look to find the back of the net in today’s game. Marcin Klim once again game off the bench against York College and scored to increase his goal total to 7 on the year, highest among Dolphins. Klim is a crucial part of this team and will once again look to make an impact after coming off the bench against the Knights.
Players To Watch (BNJ): John Grant leads the Knights with 9 goals this season as he uses his play making ability to get open and find the back of the net. Juan Faciolince is the playmaker on this team with five assists to his name, he will look to find Grant and make a mark on this game.
News and Notes: When these two teams met back in 2013 it wound up being a very defensive game that ended in a 0-0 draw. The Dolphins and Coach John Tardy will want to increase their unbeaten streak to 9 this afternoon, the highest streak under Coach Tardy, when the Knights, losers of three straight, come to the CSI Soccer Complex. On this eight game unbeaten streak the Dolphins have tallied four shutouts, three of those coming in their last four games.
