Hilton at R-HAs noted above, R-H was a completely different team in the second half. RH outscored Hilton 3-1 in third and 4-2 in the fourth to force overtime.

Hilton held the lead for six minutes before Hughes scored off a drive from the top left. Hilton once again took the lead just over a minute later with Goodrich assisting Doser.

The game tying goal was an impressive effort from Waden. After picking up the loose ball near the end line, Hilton attempted to clear the ball. Waden jumped the pass and forced the ball to the crease. With goalie Jarod Kimble out of position it was an easy goal for Raymond. Kimble finished with eleven recorded saves for the Cadets.
