The second half was scoreless until the Barons finally got ont he board when Jordan Torquato picked up a loose ball and blasted it into the back of the net.

The Flames were in complete control the majority of the contest attempting 20 shots and placing eight on goal. Lee’s defense held Brewton-Parker to only 12 shots and six were on target. Keeper Chase Kenny had five key saves for the winners. Cameron Hall picked up five saves for the Barons. Lee was awarded nine corner kicks and the Barons five.
