Game highlights

* Pereira was on the left side of the field for the first goal and went to the right side for the second corner kick goal. In one of the top goals of the season, Kyle Douglas used the back of his head to loft a shot over the goalkeeper. The ball hit the inside of the left post and went in for his first goal of the season.
 
* Avery Heilbron scored his first collegiate goal just 1:57 later on a nice give and go with Pereira. Heilbron pushed the ball to Pereira, who fought off a defender and gave the ball back to a cutting Heilbron for the score.
 
* The Eagles cut the margin to two goals at halftime when Dnye-Jha Sharrieff tallied with just 1:45 to play. Jahmal Williams pushed a quick pass to Sharrieff, who trapped the ball and quickly split between two defenders for the goal.
