Although down a goal, the Tritons didn't let that rattle them as Grad Forward Ben Tsuda pulls a goal back for UCSD. With lots of other close chances and near misses on goal, the Tritons were ready to score in the second half, as the first ended 1-1. Early in the second half, the Tritons took the lead after Grad Forward Kyle Vigil got his head onto the ball and knocked it into the net. The game continued to get more and more chippy as the game went on. UCSD was able to hold onto the lead and secure a 2-1 win over their San Diego Rivals.
