The Beavers fell behind 1-0 thanks to an own goal in the 13th minute. With the contest yet to be decided throughout most of the second half, the Engineers added a pair of scores toward the end of the match with a header in the 72nd minute by Clint Vatterrodt and an unassisted breakaway by Paul Bouagnon in the 81st minute, pushing the score to 3-0.
