The two teams would continue trading goals for the remainder of the first half with Riverhawk goals by Gruss for his second - assisted by Mark Jacoby (Glen Burnie, MD/Old Mill), and Mario Carneiro (Crofton, MD/Indian Creek) assisted by Gruss.
With the Riverhawks scoring last in the goal trade-off, AACC would lead 3-2 over CSM after the first half.
To start the second half the Hawks of the College of Southern Maryland would, once again, tie the game (3-3) but Riverhawk Zachary Roberts (Pasadena, MD/Archbishop Spalding) would finish off a beautiful assist from Deion Hunter (Laurel, MD/Meade) reclaiming the lead at 4-3.
Each team would make some aggressive plays towards the net but fail to finish – as time expired, AACC earned the 4-3 win.
