Sun finished his first complete game facing 23 shots through regulation, making ten saves. Marina recorded three shots as sophomore midfielder Gerardo Diaz (Mayaguez, Puerto Rico/Immaculate Concepcion Academy) and sophomore midfielder Bengaly Diane (New Jersey/James J. Ferris) contribute two shots apiece.
