Mendoza stretched the lead back to two (3-1) with his second goal of the game on a penalty kick with under 22 minutes left in the game. The Wildcats responded quickly and cut the deficit back to one (3-2) with under 20 minutes to play.

But, Jefferson junior Diego Tello put the game away with a score off a corner kick with under 10 minutes to play.
