At the half, Tulsa was up 2-1. In the 52nd minute, Mike Ambersley assisted on a second Herrera goal, tie-ing the score. Saint Louis continued to pressure the 10 man Tulsa team, and it wasn't long before Jamiel Hardware found Herrera to complete a hat trick for his third goal of the night. A few minutes later, Herrera scored again, putting the score at 4-2.
James Musa was able to punch in a goal in the 82nd minute to end the scoring for the evening.
