HOW IT HAPPENED
16": Sophomore RJ Dziejma (Flanders, N.J.) found himself in open space down the left flank and put in a cross searching for an Emerson player within the box. A Regis defender deflected the cross past his goalie and into the net for the opening score.
67": After a giveaway in the back, Boudreau pounced on the loose ball and found Acciardo, who curled home for the tying goal.
69": Tan was between two defenders in the Lions box and made a move to break the defense and fired the ball into the top left corner of the net as the hosts faced a 2-1 deficit.
90": The Lions committed all their players forward in search of an equalizer, but De Los Santos played a through ball to Barroso, who slotted past Kemp for the final goal of the day with seven ticks remaining on the clock.
