The Golden Eagles answered back in the 39th minute when Eduardo Iranzo took advantage of a penalty kick and put it low past Logan Nelson. Five minutes later, Matteo Ledoux drilled a pass into the 6-yard box where Joseph Gasper tapped it in the net. The home team led 2-1 at the end of the first half.
