Just 14 seconds after the second goal, Mark Lee sent a pass to Alex Wilsterman who made a move and scored on a breakaway. The Huskies scored again in the 51st minute when Wilsterman backheeled a pass finished by Harmon.

There were six yellow cards handed out, two for Shippensburg and four for Bloomsburg, in this physical match.
