The Continentals went up by two goals in the 34th minute on Bosman's unassisted goal. Bosman won a race to a loose ball, dribbled to the top of the 18-yard box and fired a left-footed shot to the lower left side of the net. Dillon took a shot that went off the right post midway through the second half.
