The Bonnies struck first early in the first half, but senior James Tarone (Rockville, MD / Thomas Wooton) scored in the 34th minute to send the game to the locker room tied at 1-1. SBU grabbed a 2-1 lead in the 61st minute, but junior Damien Pottinger (Scarborough, Ontario / Mother Teresa) equalled the game with his team-best 16th goal of the season in the 71st minute. It was senior Nathan Salsi's (North Huntingdon, PA / Norwin) penalty kick goal in the 81st minute however, that proved to be the game-winner.

Sophomore Derek Mackenzie (Carnegie, PA / Chartiers Valley) and freshman Pat Dillon (Longhorne, PA / Holy Ghost Prep) assisted on the Dukes first goal and senior Christian Reinecker (Reading, PA / Exeter Twp.) got a point on Pottinger's game-tieing score.
