Players to Watch (CSI): The Dolphins have been held scoreless for two straight games coming into today’s game, something that hasn’t happened all season. The Dolphins’ leading goal scorer is Bryant Navarro with six goals on the year, and the Dolphins are undefeated, 6-0, when he scores. CSI will need to start their attack from the midfield starting with Ali Fares and Vasyl Fedortsi as they like to link up and create opportunities for their team. Reigning CUNYAC Defender of the Week, Balint Barabas, played well over the past two games capped by a 0-0 tie against Stevens Tech.
Players to Watch (JJC): Mark Shnadshteyn has shined in his freshman season for the Bloodhounds, netting 10 goals in eight starts.  Shnadshteyn also leads his team with 42 shots, however, he puts 70% of them on target, forcing opposing keepers to make saves. Alexandros Taliotis has played between the pipes for the Bloodhounds this season, allowing 16 goals while making 77 saves.    
News & Notes: The Dolphins have owned the Bloodhounds since 2012, winning seven straight while outscoring them 21-4.  CSI hasn’t played well at home this season and is just 4-3 at the CSI Soccer Complex.  The Bloodhounds have struggled on the road, winning just four of their 10 road contests.  The Bloodhounds come into today’s game, trending upwards with a two-game win streak while the Dolphins are trending in the opposite direction coming off of a 1-0 loss to Lehman College. The Dolphins are the highest scoring team in the CUNYAC, tallying 36 goals this season while the Bloodhounds have only scored 28 on the year.
