The Seasiders tried to equalize before half but were unsuccessful, sending both teams into the break with Dominican on top 1-0.

BYU-Hawaii started things off at a quick pace looking for the equalizing opportunity when in the 51st minute Kim Micheletti put one in the back of the net tying the game 1-1.

The Seasiders kept the pressure on Dominican after that taking several shots and soon after seeing them pay off as McKenzie Evans put BYU-Hawaii ahead 2-1 in the 82nd minute.
