In the second half, the Senators once again came out quick in which they were rewarded with another goal from Kevin Zapata who found himself free in the area and was able to beat the Bobcat defender one on one. Christhian Bosquez sealed it off for the Senators in the 82nd minute when he got on the end of a through ball and put it in the back of the net to give his team a 3-0 lead.
