The Eagles quickly racked up four first half goals until Grossmont tallied to make it 4-1. The Eagles added another with five minutes left to make it 5-1. One more just before the half made it 6-1.
The Eagles continued their onslaught in the second half with a goal three minutes in to make it 7-1. Granite Hills just kept piling on the poor Foothillers; another goal made it 8-1. Add another and it was 9-1. Grossmont finally tallied with five minutes left and started to creep back with two goals that made it 9-3, but the Eagles kept it out of reach by scoring the goal that put them into double digits with a 10-3 lead. The Foothillers tried to stay in it with two last-minute goals, but the Eagles secured the victory with one last goal to secure the 11-5 win.
