In the 22nd minute, referee Tyler Ploeger pointed to the penalty spot as Energy FC’s Kyle Miller brought down Jamieson in the penalty area with a heavy challenge. Amid the protests from the visitors, Hoffman stepped up to the spot and calmly buried the ball into the bottom left corner for his seventh goal of the season.

Four minutes later, Jamieson IV showed a glimpse of his magic once again as he curled the ball into net from the edge of the box. The curling shot proved too much for the outstretched arms of Kempin as Los Dos pulled ahead by four. In the 69th minute, Galaxy II completed the scoring as McBean found himself alone in space after impressive buildup play and slotted home his first goal of the year.
