The Yellow Jackets got on the board in the 25th minute as Tyler Slayton Took a pass from Jacob McHugh on the right and put it into the middle of the goal. RMC doubled its lead with less than two minutes to go before halftime. Matt Rannie found Logan McHugh at the top of the 18-yard box, who struck it into the net for the 2-0 advantage.

E&H got on the board exactly one minute later (50:40) when freshman forward Tyequis Stallins (Chesapeake, Va.) converted a penalty kick for his team-leading fourth goal of the season and a 3-1 score.
RMC got the final goal of the contest early in the 55th minute. Jack Maxey stood over a free kick and connected with Andrew Oakes, who found the upper corner of the goal for the score.
Randolph-Macon held a 21-7 advantage on shots including a 7-3 margin on shots on goal. The Yellow Jackets also had eight corner kicks compared to two for the Wasps.
Brian Breslin picked up the win for RMC, stopping two shots in 90 minutes in goal while E&H junior Didier Grillet (Matthews, N.C.) had three saves despite the loss.
