Southern Wesleyan's Grant Kiker scored the equalizer in the 64th minute to give new life to the Warriors. Prior to the goal, Anderson's backline, which featured senior Remi Lesterlou, kept the Warriors off balance.

The Trojans answered back in the 74th minute when Calabria chipped in a goal that rebounded off the post from freshman Thomas Joergsholm's near make. Calabria scored another goal within the 74th minute after taking a short pass from senior Lars Kaula.
