the season bent but did not break on the back end. It wasn’t until in the 24th minute that the Fisherman

remainder of the first half and would break thru just before the break. Bradley Piscitello pushed the ball
from his outside back position and put a cross into the box where Sophomore Connor DiTomaso was
waiting to pocket a rebound into the net for his first goal of the season, tying the game at 1-1 going into

second half with both teams trading chances. The Fisherman however would go ahead in the 51st minute
on a deflection off a cross taking a 2-1 lead. The Falcons picked up the pace from there generating
several chances and hitting the woodwork on two separate occasions. Halfway thru the half sophomore
Gianluca Locilento would find the back of the net with a left footed volley for his first career varsity goal
tying the game at 2-2. The game would again even out with both teams having long spells of possession.
With the scoreboard clock stopped at 5 minutes the Fisherman would score the game winner with a shot
from close range and closeout the scoring at 3-2.
