Gabriel Antinoro followed with a goal from the penalty spot, and Maximilian Banfi added one on a counterattack a few minutes later. Before halftime, Jean-Aniel Assi also got his name on the scoresheet after receiving a pass from Jordan Therrien, but Seacoast United scored right after.

Back from the locker room, Jordan Therrien wasted no time, scoring from 20 metres out. Antinoro scored his second of the game a few minutes later, his 12th this season, assisted by Banfi.
