Walsh initially took an early lead as they were pressuring Lake Erie and put the ball into the box and had it bounce off a Storm defender's arm for a handball. Jordan Semple (Sr., 5-7, North Canton, OH/GlenOak) took the resulting penalty kick and kicked it true for the 1-0 lead at 4:19. It was the only goal of the first half.
Lake Erie scored the equalizer in the second half as Luke Hobbs sent a cross from left to right and found Stefan Martin in front of the goal in the 62nd minute. The Storm then went ahead as Anthony Novak scored off of a rebound with just over 10 minutes remaining.
