At 30-minutes Washington forward Roldan fired a shot that Mitrou got a hand on, slowing it down before it could trickle behind him. Washington then received a chance to the right of Mitrou, with Roldan once again firing a shot that Barrett slid to block, the rebound going wide left.

The Crossfire would net the game's first goal at 39-minutes. With defensman Justin Schmidt converting on a penalty kick that was assessed to Tyller Hughes following a tackle on Roldan that the referee deemed worthy of a card.

The Highlanders would be unable to even the score before the half was up, with the shots favouring Washington 5-3.

At 46-minutes Mitrou raced 30-yeards out of his net to beat Roldan to the ball, kicking it away before the Crossfire striker could get a touch. Once again maintaining possession in the opening five-minutes, the Highlanders applied pressure in the offensive zone but were unable to capitalize.

At 53-minutes, Levis collided with goalkeeper Clark after breaking up the left wing, Clark would receive a yellow card. The free kick taken by Tyler Hughes, would go wide right.

At 63 minutes roldan would get a breakway, with Mitrou coming out to challenge, Roland would fire it past the goalleeper to put the Crossfire up 2-0.

Down a man, the Highlander would apply pressure, with Levis nearly converting a pass from Prette off a Highlanders corner kick in the 86th minute.
