After a 2-0 first half in favor of the visiting team, S-E began to produce some offense, hitting multiple shots. S-E's best chance to score came off of a shot in the second half where the ball just missed the goal and bounced off the cross bar.
For Holland Patent it was Connor Lynsky who led the way with two goals. Garret Capauana and Jose Arroio also contributed to Holland Patent. "Our problem has been consistency this season," said S-E coach Mike Rodriguez. "We need to learn how to play two really great halves instead of just one. If we can do that I think that we will be in good shape."
