In the second half, the Bobcats came out with much more intensity from the start and were able to capitalize on a loose ball on top of the area. The Scottish native, Adam Gribben, was able to get on the ball and fire an absolute rocket into the top left corner of the goal leaving the goalkeeper with no chance to make a save. Gribben earned his first career collegiate goal with class.
