In the second half, Scott Hall found a loose ball off the Crusaders' goalkeeper and netted his team's second goal of the match at 73:36. Senior goalkeeper Jason Maestas turned away nine shots on goal by MBBC to preserve the victory and the shutout. MBBC out-shot the Eagles by a 14-10 margin in overall attempts.
