After 35 scoreless minutes, they found their rhythm toward the end of the first half. Ben Tritsch (Bel Air, Md./Bel Air) scored off an assist from Kyle Roberts (Downingtown, Pa./Downingtown West) just inside the 18 yard box to break the dead even match in the 36th minute. Just three minutes later, freshman Anthony Glossner (Centre Hall, Pa./Penns Valley) finished off of an assist from Austin Nace, (Littlestown, Pa./Littlestown) also a freshman.
In the second half, Juniata came out with a bit more fire and also possessed the ball more than the first half. In the 60th minute, Greg Hess (Hanover, Pa./South Western) slipped the third and final goal in off a cross from David Grim (Boalsburg, Pa./State College Area).
Juniata had an overall advantage in the game with 12 shots compared to Delaware Valley's eight, and five corner kicks compared to Delaware Valley's three.
