Javier Rios (Sr., Chihuahua, Mexico) and Kamal Abda (Jr., Oromiya,
Ethiopia) sandwiched the 20-minute mark of the game with Hamline's first
Rios' goal came at 19:02 on a pass from Moe Tageldin (Sr., Rochester, Minn.) right in front of the net.
Abda then scored his first collegiate goal at 21:05. His score was unassisted.
Hamline added two more goals about a minute apart later in the first
half. First-year Stephen Johnson (Apple Valley, Minn.) scored at 38:38
from his classmate Greg Northrop (Arden Hills, Minn.).
Abda then picked up his first collegiate assist as he crossed the
ball to Grant Fehling (Fy., Stillwater, Minn.), who headed the ball in
at 39:45 for his first collegiate goal.
Carrying the 4-0 lead into the second half, Rios tallied his second
goal of the game at 46:47 from DJ Weil (So., Chaska, Minn.).

Hamline's final goal came at 66:03 as a corner kick from Michael
Murphy (Fy., Mahtomedi, Minn.) was headed in by Moses Kabogoza (Jr.,
Kampala, Uganda). For Kabogoza, who transferred to Hamline this fall, it
was his first tally as a Piper.
Eric Feil (So., Eagan, Minn.) made his first collegiate start in
goal, earning the win while making one save. The Pipers outshot the Rams
44-5 in the game and had 14 corner kicks to the Rams' four.
