Atwater Waterloo earned their first win of the season in this hard-fought matchup, dominating possession and controlling the action on both ends of the pitch. It proved to be a battle of defensive prowess rather than offensive power, as both sides kept the other from making any significant strides in the scoring department. Neither team was able to break through until the 28th minute when Atwater Waterloo found the back of the net to take the 1-0 lead into halftime. Both goalkeepers made several key saves throughout the night, but none more important than when Garfield had a chance to equalize late in the second half, only to be shot down by the Atwater Waterloo custodian. The story of the night was the consistent and formidable Atwater Waterloo defense that held on to their lead and secured the shutout win.
