Both team totaled 10 shots while the Colonels (2-6) held a slight 7-4 advantage in corner kicks while the two goalies combined for seven saves. But Michael Hasbrouck converted on Wilkes' first penalty kick of the season to give the hosts its first win in its last seven tries dating back to last season.

Junior Michael Tringali finished with three saves while senior Reid Hawkins totaled two of the Mustangs four shots on goal.
