In the second half of the game, Elliot Thompson assisted Wright for a goal in the 50th minute. The final goal of the match was scored by sophomore, Justin Mulholland, who received a pass from Wille Kersey and shot it past the Beaver 'keeper in the 67th minute. The game would end a 5-0 victory for the Panthers.
"The team stepped up and put another professional performance in," said head coach, Chris Swift. "After a very tough non-conference schedule, we now have some momentum at the right time...Right now, we are exactly where we want to be, in control of our own destiny."
GC outshot their opponents 33 to 5 in the match. Goalkeepers Thomas Crown and Ian McReynolds split the match, each playing 45 minutes. Crown tallied one save and McReynolds was credited with two. Both 'keepers helped the Panthers record the shut-out victory.
