A mid-half free kick got the best Cleveland SC again as the home squad couldn’t track a cross to Anthony Virgara. The Virgara-McDyer connection got the best of the Cleveland SC defense again in the second half following another Fort Pitt corner kick.
Danny Rupel scored a consolation goal in the 90th minute to bring the final score to 3-1.
