Three goals in a five-minute stretch helped set the tempo for the rest of the game for the Pirates (1-2-1) as they outshot the Wolverines (3-2-1) 19-6 in the game.

Sanchez started things off for OCC, finding the back of the net at the 19-minute mark.
Just two minutes later, Bauman took a pass from Chase Nugent and scored to make it 2-0.
The fun continued for the Pirates as Chela slipped a Bauman pass into the net at the 24th minute to make it 3-0.
The Wolverines finally found some success as a goal by Alexander Turkson in the 42nd minute made it 3-1, but the Pirates ended the first half on a strong note as Sanchez's second goal of the game (assisted by Frankie Munoz) put OCC in front 4-1 at the break.
Coast used a pair of penalty-kick goals early in the second half to blow the match wide open. Bauman took both PK attempts and buried both, putting the Pirates up 6-1.
Bauman closed out the scoring in the 65th minute when he took a Chela feed and notched his fourth goal of the game to make it 7-1.
In goal, OCC's Connor Nelson had three saves to pick up the win, while SBVC's Sean Dockrell had six saves.
