The Black and Orange started the match with a bang in the fifth minute as midfielder Kyle Scott played a through ball over the top to forward Bryce Jamison. Jamison collected the ball at the top of the 18-yard-box and put it away into the bottom left corner of the net, putting OCSC ahead 1-0.

The County Boys continued to push forward in the 11th minute as midfielder Ben Norris, making the first USL Championship start of his young career, sent the ball ahead to forward Ryan Flood on the left side of the box. Flood fired one to the bottom left corner of the net just outside the goalpost.

The Black and Orange attack progressed again in the 17th minute, as the home team won a corner. Flood sent the ball into the box towards forward Ethan Zubak. Zubak sent a rocket towards goal that just missed wide left.
