Minutes following the break, River Terry connected on one of his six shots on goal in the match as the ball trickled past the keeper and a Hazleton defender to extend the lead to 3-1.


The Bogdon-Paniagua connection struck gold in the 56th minute for Hazleton as Bogdon finished off this goal to cut the lead back to one.


The remainder of the game remained scoreless until the final minute of play when Andrew Wang finished off a corner kick by Kynn Loss for an insurance goal in the waning seconds of action.
