Nine minutes later, Ryan Smith netted the second Shelton goal.

The Gaels put it away four minutes later, when Isaijah Robles scored off of an excellent lead pass by Kyle Gil.

The Shelton defense was strong all night, powered by centerbacks Liam Keary and Justin Widomski. Casey Cisero stopped the only shot on goal by the Rams (9-1-1).
