Mecardo Knight evened the score at one a piece after NOVA opened the scoring early in the first half. His goal came after great individual work by Ramario Chapman who had the presence of mind to find Knight inside the box.
This momentum carried into the second half and Rodrigo Hernandez was able to score his first of the season with a calm finish into the side netting from a George Afakpe pass. Afakpe was later credited with his second assist of the game, after he made a strong run down the left side and passed to Knight who scored his second goal of the game.
