The Gusties kept the scoring rolling early in the half when at the 25-minute mark Palden Choesang (Fy., New Brighton) extended the Gustie lead to two when he got a shot from the right side of the box that he put in for the score.

The rest of the first half played scoreless but in half number two the Gusties got on the board quickly again when Will Richards (Sr., Hudson, Wis.) put Gustavus up three 12 minutes into the half with a header off a cross from Matt Gibbons (Jr., Minneapolis). Neither team would score the rest of the contest as the Gusties were able to post a shutout.
