After the Stars Reserves went ahead the Steelheads got level when  Max Smith converted a penalty kick just before halftime. SnoCo FC took a 2-1 lead in the 84th minute on a goal from Elijah Gordon. The club’s first-ever win was close to becoming reality, but then Seattle got level before the large portion of added time. As added time went on and on, Seattle found a winner.
