- The Lead: Backed by one goal and two assists from Dylan Rodrigues (Naples, Fla. / Gulf Coast High School), the Assumption Greyhounds defeated the No. 22 Le Moyne Dolphins 3-1 in a soggy conference matchup on Tuesday afternoon. 

HOW IT HAPPENED:

- Rodrigues had a hand in each of the Hounds' goals. He put the team up 1-0 at the 43:18 mark on a kick from dead-center. Then in the second half, Rodrigues' corner kick was sent toward the net by Kevin Hernandez (San Juan, P.R. / Colegio San Jose) and redirected in by Andres Amador (Bogota, Colombia / Revere) to put the Hounds up 2-1.

Jason Lages (Edgartown, Mass. / Martha's Vineyard) then took a long pass from Rodrigues and went one-on-one with Dolphins' goalie, Josh Mahr. Lages beat him from the left side to put the Hounds up 3-1.

- The Dolphins' lone goal came by Pablo Fernandez when his high shot went off Assumption goalie Sebastian Jimenez's (Naples, Fla. / Gulf Coast High School) hand, tying the game at one.

INSIDE THE NUMBERS:

- Le Moyne held a 19-10 shot advantage, outshooting Assumption 11-6 in the second-half. Le Moyne also held a 9-6 advantage in corner kicks.
