The Knights traveled to Seneca Valley to take on the Screaming Eagles on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. The Eagles were ready to play and opened the scoring in the first ten minutes going up 1-0. The Knights were able to tie the game ten minutes later when Anthony Hernandez drew a penalty in the box and Fidel Alfaro Marquez buried the ensuing penalty kick. The Eagles and Knights took turns controlling the ball until about two minutes into the second half when a breakaway runner for the Eagles was taken down on a clear goal-scoring opportunity just outside the box. The Knights had to play man-down for the rest of the match. The defense was able to withstand being man-down and the Knights continued to create goal-scoring opportunities and forced overtime. The Screaming Eagles would not be denied and found the winning goal just a few minutes into the first overtime period.
