Misael Gonzalez had an active day scoring 2 goals along with an assist, but the goal was credited to Kevin Manzo, who snuck the ball past the goalie in the 48th minute (assist Gonzalez). 

Gonzalez hit paydirt in the 52nd and 84th minute with assists coming from Brian Aragon and Joseph Bustamante 

With a healthy 3-0 lead and the clock running down, Sergio Ibarra kicked one into the back of the net to seal the game in the 88th minute. 

Goal keepers Allen Lopez and Jose Estrada combined for 5 saves to hold on for the shutout-win.
