Everyone of the reported 1,125 fans in the stands thought the game was over, when they realized they were going to be treated to a penalty shootout. And to the delight of the local fans, Austin came on top 3-0.
Wes Allen, Jarius Holmes and Alex Tapp scored the winning penalty goals for the Aztex; while Cristian Arrieta, Noah Delgado and Josh Hansen missed their shots for the Puerto Ricans. Sam Reynolds covered the posts for Austin, and newly acquired goalie Chris McClellan did the same for the Islanders.
The Islanders starting lineup included: Bill Gaudette, Noah Delgado, Cristian Arrieta, Nigel Henry, Kyle Veris, Scott Jones, John Krause, Josh Hansen, Sandy Gbandi, James Marcelin and Kendall Jagdeosingh.
Petter Villegas came in on the 33th minute to replace Noah Delgado, and on the 60th minute the Islanders replaced all the players on the field, except for Kyle Veris: McClellan (goalie), Noël, Fraser, Cisneros, Cabrero, Nuñez, Mediate, Villaroel, Rivera and Morris played the last 30 minutes of the game.
