Breakdown: It was a hard fought game for both teams as there were no goals scored in the first half of the match. NJC defense struggled to keep control of the ball allowing LCCC to get solid movement and formation which led to back to back goals. NJC couldn't recover from the deficit and was only able to get one goal in for the match at minute 76. LCCC had 16 shots total with 3 being on goal whereas NJC had 10 shots, 5 of which were on goal.
