Ultimately, the goal would be Mwape's team-leading third game-winning goal of the season. The three game-winners are tied for the second most in the Mid-South this season.

The Blue Raiders maintained their 1-0 lead into the halftime break.

It was more of the same in the second half. After an 11-1 shots advantage in the first half, the Blue Raiders outshot the Bears 14-4 in the second frame.
