Tschetter scored his second goal but Irondequoit kept the game close with back to back goals from Stefano (the first assisted by Doktor and the second by Mike Coholan). Tschetter`s third goal finished out the half with the Little Irish still holding a two goal lead. The third quarter saw the beginning of the Irondequoit comeback. The Eagles scored two goals and held the Little Irish scoreless. Jack Brennan and Doktor scored one goal each to tie the game 5-5 going into the final quarter.

The fourth quarter belonged to the Eagles. Aquinas sophomore midfielder, Jonathan Parrinello, scored the opening goal to take their last lead of the contest. Three Irondequoit goals spanning seven minutes gave them their first and only lead of the game. Coholan, Stefano and Brennan scored one goal each in the final quarter. The final goal of the game was scored by Evan Kelly with 2:00 left on the clock.

The final minutes of the game were exciting with both teams having chances to close out the game. Aquinas had a late extra-man opportunity that the Eagles man down defense closed out. Irondequoit attempted to slow down the pace, but Aquinas took the ball back and had another shot at the goal. A late shot by Jamir Jones (Aquinas) bounced off the pipe to keep Irondequoit in the lead. The Eagles took back possession with 0:37 remaining and held the ball for the win.
