HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Regis entered the scoring mix at the 12th minute mark off a net by Triana, who drilled the game's first net from within the right post off a pass from Niyonzima towards midfield and into the left hand corner past Fischer. 
  • After Montoya broke away down the center, he passed the ball off to an open Furbino within the left side of the box and fired the Pride's second goal past Fischer's reach.
  • Emerson once again outshot Regis, this time at 8-6, but the Lions were held scoreless as the visitors added an insurance goal at the 84th minute mark to put the final at 3-0. 
  • In the 84th minute, Furbino notched his second goal of the game after he caught Fischer out of position and fired the ball into the lower right hand corner.
