In a flash, the Hawks were up 3-0 after Hassan Turay scored 30 seconds later on a breakaway with an assist from Washington. Washington netted his second goal minutes later to put CSM ahead 4-0.

Washington completed his hat trick on a spectacular goal in the 51st minute. Yohan Ouedraogo sent a cross in from the left side to Washington who finished by jumping and one-timing his shot in the air into the left side of the goal, giving the Hawks a 5-0 lead.

Matthew Roseto scored his brace on goals in the 59th and 71st minutes with Larsen providing assists on both. Jagne added CSM’s final goal in the 90th minute.

CSM allowed Allegany only two shots with none coming in the second half.
