The Yellow Jackets lead the second half at 1-0 until the eighty-eighth minute, when senior Adam Ordel (Lima, Ohio / Elida) connected with junior Christian Rennie (Conroe, Tex. / Porter) for a goal to seal the 2-0 victory. 

Freshman, Orry Killiam (Napoleon, Ohio / Liberty Center) got his first start in the net for the Purple and Gold recording three saves on four shots on the goal.
