Heading into overtime with the score tied at 1-1 both teams looked for golden goal but came up short. The Owls had the only shot in the first overtime but it was denied by Falcons keeper Christopher Garcia (Rowland Heights, CA). The match went into double overtime but the two scoring opportunities the Falcons had were saved by Owls keeper Caleb Thompson (Washburn, ME). After 90 minutes of regulation and two overtimes the match ended in a draw 1-1.
