  • The Rams had a good look to tie the game in the 24th minute when ENC goalie Matais Pait (Lima, Peru) crashed hard to attempt to clear a pass that was chipped wide of the open net by Gabe Padilla (Framingham.)
  • The Rams tied the score in the 29th minute when Kunphel Sinha (Darjeeling, India) sent in a long strike to the top right corner of the net off a long throw in from Cameron Lau (Swampscott).

  • The Rams tied the game in with seven seconds remaining when a long strike was sent in front of the net by Lau and chipped inside the left post by Nic Santos (Concord.) to force overtime.  
  • The Rams had a great look about five minutes into the extra frame on a give-and-go but Jeffson Malachie’s (Tuma, Ghana) attempt when high.
