It ws with less than three minutes to play that they would capitalize on one of their counter opportunities. Jackie Flynn made a beautiful cross from the corner to the head of teammate Christian Breaux to tie up the game.
The Fighting Scots didn't back down, but a few fouls in the last seconds of play became a problem as the Vulcans took a free kick and found Elliot Taylor in front of the net with just ten seconds left in play. With no time left, that would be enough to give Cal-PA the 2-1 victory.
