Back on Saturday the Fighting Scots struck first at 56:19 but Emmett Hendrickson tied it up at 1-all with an unassisted goal off the post and crossbar.  The game stayed 1-1 into overtime.

After Monmouth put two shots on goal with no scoring in the first 10 minutes of extra time MC took the match three minutes into the second OT.

Bauer made 11 saves in goal for the Bucs.  The Fighting Scots held a commanding 25-5 advantage in shots for the game and took seven corner kicks to the Buccaneers' two.
