With only 10 minutes left on the clock, senior Kenny Luke caught the Cowboys off guard, and put one in the back of the net, tying it up. After this surprising goal, Livermore came back full force, but keeper Gabe Sandler was able to hold them off.

With four minutes left in the game, senior Parker Doliber scored another goal with a perfect finish. The Mustangs took the lead, and defeated Livermore with a final score of 2-1.
