Pacific Lutheran came out of the break hot, finding the back of the net once again in the 50th minute, setting the score at 2-0.

George Fox had the opportunity to chip into the lead as they earned a penalty kick in the 59th minute, but they were unable to convert as the Lutes remained ahead.

Pacific Lutheran struck once more in the 80th minute, bending in a free kick to set the score at 3-0, which the Bruins were ultimately unable to overcome.
