The Crusaders logged the first goal of the game in the 9th minute by Mustapha Olorunnimbe. In the 37th minute of play, Ogbemudia Iyoha successfully converted a penalty kick to give Madonna a 2-0 advantage. An early second half goal by Heath Somers trimmed the lead to one goal, but Madonna responded
with Mustapha Olorunnimbe second goal of the game to finish the scoring at 3-1.

Four Saints were honored at halftime for their commitment to the Aquinas College men's soccer program. Seniors Chad DuRussel, Ruben Ornelas-Luna, Jeovani Pantoja and Michael Vaughan all played their last regular season home contest in a Saints uniform.
