There is a typo in your code, it's small but changes the code quite a bit. You have a semicolon (;) at the end of the parenthesis for your if statement which is incorrect.

By placing the semicolon (;) there you tell C# That the if statement is finished. So the code you place below it in brackets gets treated like code that is independent of the if statement. Which means that it will always execute.

If you remove it then your code will work.
