The Wolverines scored three early goals to take control. Alex Lopez and Zack Barta scored in the third and fourth minutes, both unassisted, and Joel Garcia added a third goal in the eight minute on an assist from Gonzalez.

Gonzalez got in on the scoring action with an unassisted goal just two minutes into the second half, and Manny Sarabia rounded out the offense with a goal assisted by Barta in the 50th minute.
