The Roots end up drawing at the last minute 2 to 2 thanks to a late Lights goal from CC Uche at the 89th minute. The Lights got off to an early lead with a Danny Trejo goal in the 5th minute. The Roots later drew even thanks to a 24th minute goal from Quincy Amarikwa. The second tally was added thanks to the Lights Tony Leone directing a own goal four minutes later giving the home town the lead. Unfortunately it was not meant to be with the last place Lights tying the game and stealing a point on the road.
