The breakthrough came when Florida Native Chris White was brought down in the box and Gareau converted from the penalty spot. Freshman, Chris white later made it four after converting on a through ball from Kalugendo. To round off the scoring Junior midfielder Timothy Ward scored the fifth goal from a well struck set piece ten yards out from the edge of the box.
